The family of a six-year-old girl has won the fight for a life-changing diabetes treatment after being told by health chiefs it was too costly to administer.
Health campaigners say Scotland is way behind other countries in its adoption of the pump, despite having one of the highest levels of Type 1 diabetes in the western world. Currently more than 500 people with Type 1 diabetes in Scotland use insulin pumps compared to a possible figure of around 3,000.
This dog thinks it’s a shame that something as simple as getting a pump makes news as it’s so difficult to do. Growl!
