March’s minutes

Thank you for everyone who attended March’s meeting.

We welcomed Jayne Bryant AM for Newport West who has been recently appointed as the Chair of the Cross Party Group for Diabetes at the National Assembly.

Jayne was interested in hearing the stories from the group of our experiences and along with Sara Moran from Diabetes UK Cymru are keen to put forward our concerns at the next CPG (Cross Party Group) meeting, she also kindly invited us to the meeting, it’s so important to have the views of those living with diabetes as well as the views of the professionals such as doctors etc. – The date of the next meeting has yet to be confirmed as following the meeting a number of people who we thought should be at the meeting were not available so we are currently awaiting a date and time for the next meeting which I will forward to everyone, if you think you might like to be involved.

Jayne also invited us to attend the Assembly on a Tuesday where she would like to offer us lunch if we let her know we are attending and we will also be able to sit in on First Ministers Questions during the afternoon.
