Schools to give insulin injections14th November 2008
Charity Diabetes UK says that the health of many children with type 1 diabetes is threatened due to poor care in primary schools.
It claims 6,500 pupils in England are not covered by school medication policies which ensure they get insulin injections when needed meaning parents often need to visit during the school day to administer injections. The charity wants ministers to force school inspectors to keep checks on the care of children with diabetes and be more supportive in terms of injection regimes.
