Re: [IPu] suggestions please



Hi there Gail.
I agree with you about T1 being 'neglected' - I've emailed you off line with 
a whole screed about things. I think the main problem with T1 is that it is 
a 'specialist' subject and ideally all T1 are attended to by a clinic which 
should be giving ongoing education - it just doesn't happen!
Kathy.
