SCARBOROUGH was represented at a parliamentary event in London called “Let’s Talk Diabetes”.

The event, hosted by Lord Kennedy of Southwark, was attended by Mark Husler, chairman of the Scarborough voluntary group of Diabetes UK.

He said: “This was a fantastic opportunity to talk to a wide range of Parliamentarians about the support that should be available for people living with diabetes.

“One in three people with diabetes could be risking their health and experiencing emotional distress by keeping their diabetes secret.”
