Re: [IPk] Funding

Hi Jules,

Does the team have a letter which we can ask to be sent to our GPs - I
am getting a pump (yes, really, at long last!)  My specialist is in
London (I live on the Surrey / Hants borders), and never talk to my GP
about diabetes.  I want my GP to be interested and involved, but don't
know what the protocol and procedure is for telling a GP about a pump.
My London doctor is completely oblivious to the role of the GP
(diabetics, of course, never get sick in any other way than diabetes!),
and doesn't communicate with the GP.

My GP is Dr Anderson, at Ash Vale Health Centre (and much as I'd hate
for him to hear that I'm getting a pump through a letter from a support
group, I guess that is better than hearing it from the patient!)

Best wishes,
