Hi Jules
You misunderstood me. I didn't mean he/she *shouldn't* be informed - just
the opposite. I meant I didn't see why there shold be such a problem about
informing him.
 Pat - I really don't think your GP is going to strike you off his list
suddenly just because you now have a pump!!! What reason would he have for
doing that? Unless he seriously thinks that having a pump is going to
endanger your health and cost his practice loads of money to look after you
(in which case you're definitely better off swtiching GPs anyway!).
