    Val , as a fellow nurse and type 1 diabetic i fully agree with your views . I have never had to be admitted to A and E but often wonder what exactly i should be doing when unwell with high blood sugars… keep testing and adjusting ! The one that always flummoxes me is the way your blood sugar soars as you do up your seat belt in the airplane. I have learned not to worry, carry on as normal and as soon as you leave the plane it all returns to normal. Is this a well known phenomenon or is it just me ?
    I teach theatre nurses in africa and wonder if you could guide me to any relevant documentation . Thank you Judy

    There must be a huge shopping list here ! Fitted sheets to save sitting on a wrinkly sheet would top my list . Having long legs a pair of trousers that did not leave you looking like Oliver Twist would be good . However i really don't know if Rose can fix the NHS , he did not do too well with M and S. Telling people they are rubbish is about as negative as you can get. Anyone who has brought up a child knows that praise succeeds every time .
    Fixing the NHS, thats a real conundrum !
