SANOFI ON-BODY DEVICE TYPE 1 TECH

EVENIING (YORK)

SKYPE SAVINGS

A company developing and manufacturing

advanced wearable infusion devices has

entered into a multi-product development

agreement with insulin supplier Sanofi.

Developed and manufactured by

Enable Injections, the enFuse is an onbody

device which allows people to

self-administer subcutaneous delivery

of high-volume medicines and has the

potential to give people an alternative

method of delivering insulin and other

therapies.

Diabetes UK is calling for the Government

not to water down plans to introduce

mandatory calorie labelling in restaurant,

cafe and takeaway chains, which

could result in just 0.3% of businesses

in England adopting the proposed

legislation.

The Government's original plans for

calorie labelling legislation, which were

publicly consulted on in 2018, included

all medium-sized businesses, suggested

exemptions only for 'micro' businesses

with fewer than 10 employees, such as

single operator food trucks. Indications

now are that they could be significantly

watered down, exempting all businesses

with fewer than 250 employees.

The charity says this would mean only

520 businesses out of a total 168,040 in

the accommodation and food services

sector across England would be required

to introduce calorie labels on menus

or at the point of choice - a significant

step back in the fight against childhood

obesity.

Helen Dickens, Assistant Director of

Policy & Campaigns at Diabetes UK, said:

"Exempting 99.7% of businesses

from its calorie labelling legislation would

be a cop out from our government. The

plans, if they only apply to the largest

businesses, would mean the vast majority

of out of home businesses would not have

to provide consumers with the information

they want and need.

"The government must publish

their calorie labelling plans urgently,

and provide assurances that medium

sized businesses are included in their

plans - along with a clear timeline for

implementation in these businesses. We

cannot allow 99.7% of café, restaurant

and takeaway businesses to continue

as usual while the UK's obesity crisis

worsens and cases of Type 2 diabetes

continue to rise."

As part of the charity's Food Upfront

campaign, Diabetes UK is also calling for

clearer and more consistent nutritional

and carbohydrate labelling so people with

diabetes - and the public - know what is

in the food they're buying.

A medical team holding Skype video calls

in Tameside, Greater Manchester, has

prevented 3,000 avoidable visits to A&E

and freed up 2,000 GP appointments.

The team, made up of NHS doctors

and nurses, takes video calls from care

homes, sheltered accommodation and

community teams. The move forms part

of the delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan,

which commits to improving care home

residents' healthcare, joining up health

and social care services and providing

improved, convenient care through digital

technology. It has freed up hundreds of

hours of staff time and saved up to £1.3m.
