Scottish readers (and I know you exist) will be interested that Scotland’s SIGN Diabetes Management Guidelines Consultation is now taking place. Aileen at IPAG Scotland reminds us that any responses from the pancreatically challenged hoards need to be submitted before 16th October 2009.
In particular, the section on pump therapy (4.3.1) looks like it was written back in the Dark Ages of diabetes care and isn’t all that helpful to anyone in Scotland considering taking up pump therapy in the next ten years.
So have a look at the draft guidelines at http://www.sign.ac.uk/guidelines/drafts/diabetes.html (especially that thrilling 4.3.1 bit) and bash in a response giving them your views. Our beloved health authorities need our help and guidance to make sure they get it right!
