The Scottish Herald reports: “A TREATMENT that can transform the lives of patients with diabetes [i.e. pumps –Neville] has been put on hold by Scotland’s largest health board amid the drive for spending cuts, according to consultants and patients. Insiders say NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has suspended its adult waiting list for insulin pumps – devices which reduce the need for frequent injections and allow people with severe forms of the condition to lead a more normal life.
This dog notes that diabetes care in the west of Scotland was diabolical and has now sunk to the levels of truly bloody dreadful. Nice one NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde! The sooner the decision makers in this abysmal PCT are nailed into a barrel with a couple of angry jackals and rolled down a bloody steep hill, the better.
