Call for action on medicine shortages

19 Feb 2024

Christine has led a debate on the lack of available drugs for type 2 diabetes patients after constituents raised concerns about supply issues. She has urged Government to ensure clinical guidance puts diabetes patients first.

Christine Jardine said: ‚ÄúDiabetes patients in my constituency are stuck between a rock and a hard place, with the NHS and devolved Government unable to act and a UK Government too slow to react.  It seems that neither Government has realised how serious this may be for some patients who rely on these drugs daily. Current patients may now see even longer disruption to care plans, and new diabetes patients may be unable to get the treatment that is right for them."
