DIABETES UK asks people in Swindon and Wiltshire to help improve care in schools for children with diabetes by taking part in a consultation.

The survey has been launched after draft guidance on what schools will be expected to do from September to support children with conditions such as asthma, epilepsy and type one diabetes.

Under the current system, children with diabetes can be prevented from meeting their academic potential because the support they need is not in place. Those with Type-1 diabetes can be excluded from activities, denied places on school trips, and refused help with injecting.
