RE: [IPk] Funding of Designated Specialist Centres for Diabetic Insulin Pum p Users



Carmel & Pat,

The idea with funding Designated Specialist Centres is not prescriptive but
seen as part of an evolution to widespread support for IP users. Support for
IP users is still innovative and can, I believe, benefit from proper and
direct funding from Regional Specialised Commissioning Groups (RSCGs) until
it becomes widespread and therefore no longer specialised! 

What is needed is a definition of the service, the support centre, and
really what benefits arise as a business case.

Philip

Do you mean that funding would have to be sought for new centres of 
excellence? Judging by the correspondance to tnsulin pumpers there do 
already seem to be hospitals with experience but not enough funding . Could 
the money not be chanelled to these centres? Carmel
