MPs and peers with a special interest in the issue of diabetes. The APPG engages with parliamentarians, people living with diabetes, health professionals and experts to share information, hold events and to ensure diabetes remains high on the political agenda.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
