Keith raised diabetes prevention in the opposition day debate on National Health Service Funding on Tuesday 23rd November 20176.

He said:

“It is important that we focus not just on the level of spending but on where we spend the money. With long-term conditions such as diabetes, is it not essential to focus on preventive work, which in the long term will save the national health service a huge amount of money?”

The Secretary of State for Health, the Rt  Hon Jeremy Hunt MP replied stating:

“That is absolutely right. In all frankness, that argument could have been made from the Opposition Front Bench this afternoon, and we would be having a much better debate.”
