Hello Jackie

I know what you mean!  I have been advised to write a letter back to the PCT 
asking for a meeting with the woman who wrote the letter.  It is suggested 
 that I take as many people with me as possible, ie, doctor, Consultant,
specialist nurse, teacher, head teacher, husband etc.  It is a possibility 
that if I come face to face with the person and the fact that the head teacher 
said she has noticed a change in Danielle's school work since she has been on 
the pump, that they might listen to me.

Let's hope anyway.  

Mum to Danielle aged 9, pumping since Nov 2002
