Re: [IPk] pump clinic

That makes sense. But I'm already seen by a great consultant, who knows 
enough about pumps and has lots of people on them. I don't see a DSN as 
I have no need. This new pump clinic is at a different hospital so it 
seems unlikely that it would replace my existing one entirely.  I don't 
have a need for any additional clinic as far as I can tell as my needs 
are all covered already. But maybe I'll ask next time they ring for an 
appointment to be given the details of whoever's running it, then I can 
find out more. I certainly don't want to switch to another consultant as 
I'm very happy with the one I have. And the hospital is much more 
convenient for me.
