Why have Northampton PCT withdrawn the funding for a life changing course for those with type one insulin dependent diabetes? This course lasts one week and is delivered by the diabetes care team at Northampton.
It is a pioneering move in terms of diabetes management and i learnt from this things I have not learned in 28 years of diabetes.
DAFNE is a course which is renowned in Europe for minimising the "financial drain" on the health service particularly in later life for diabetes related complications.
This course is a right of a diabetic person not a privelege. Who gives the PCT the right to stop the dissemination of this information?
