The IP-UK mailing list is a system that has been set up to allow you to receive
and exchange emails with other people who, like you, have an interest in diabetes
and insulin pumps, with an emphasis on their use in the United Kingdom.
Who can join?
Anyone who has a legitimate interest in diabetes and insulin pumps. Perhaps you
have diabetes yourself, whether or not you use a pump. Or you may be close to
someone with diabetes. Or you may be a healthcare professional with an interest in
diabetes and insulin pumps.
How do I join?
In an effort to reduce SPAM and protect the
privacy of the list members, all of the Insulin-Pumpers' mail
lists are CLOSED LIST's. To join the list, you must submit a member profile
which consists of a
short paragraph about yourself, describing
your connection with diabetes. It's not a test! This paragraph or "profile"
will be sent to other members of the list when you join, by way of introduction.

A short paragraph about yourself:
This is an example of the sort of things you might say about yourself:
My name is Rachel Smith. I'm 27 and work for a travel agent. I've had
diabetes since I was 10. I'm on Actrapid 3 times a day, and Insulatard
once a day. My control is pretty good, though it could be better. I
have no complications, but my doctor has suggested a pump may give me
more flexibility. Oh, I'm from Manchester, and support Manchester
How would you like to receive emails from the mailing list?
(Please select one option.)
All emails are sent to you immediately.
You will receive just one large email each day, containing all the emails sent
to the list that day. This option helps busy people cut down on the volume of
email being received.
You have full list membership, and can send emails to the list, but you will receive
no emails. You can read what others have written by visiting the Members Only area
of the Insulin Pumpers web site.
Check all the information you have entered, especially your email address.
We aim to process all applications within 24hrs.
When you are accepted, you will be sent a "welcome" email, containing more detailed
information about using the list.
