The petition states:

The Petition of the people of Croydon,

Declares that in Croydon there is good work being done to combat diabetes and that Croydon now needs more screening tests for diabetes; more albumin creative ratio checks and HbA1C tests for those already living with diabetes; and Government support for Croydon's services that combat the diabetic arterial diseases that can lead to amputations; and that with the right support amputations could be cut by 30% through better total care and public health education to allow for earlier intervention to stop amputations.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to support Croydon's services that combat the diabetic arterial diseases and to encourage health providers to make available more screening tests for diabetes and more albumin creative ratio checks and HbA1C tests for those already living with diabetes.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
