Gordon Brown responded to our messages | April 7, 2010

News from Downing Street last month (March 2010)….

Dear Sue,

I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that Gordon Brown has responded to the messages we delivered to Downing Street last November.

In his letter, the Prime Minister stressed the Government’s determination to make the UK the best place in the world for health research, development and innovation. You can read more about Gordon Brown’s response and see a copy of the letter here…

JDRF welcomes the focus on type 1 diabetes that the Prime Minister’s letter brings. We are, however, concerned that it is hard to establish how much is spent on type 1 research as records do not differentiate between the different types of diabetes. Only by changing this will we know the true picture of type 1 in the UK. We will keep pressing for this to help take us closer to the cure.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to send in your message back in November. If you would like to continue to help raise awareness of type 1 diabetes.

Thank you again for your support.


Karen Addington
Chief Executive
