"KAREN course at Kings Mill Hospital"

(as the patient),

The last 12 months I have been struggling to control my type 1 diabetes, my partner has to twice call 999 for an ambulance/paramedic to attend my severe hypoglycemic attacks due to poor control of my blood sugar. So when I was offered a place in the KAREN course at Kings Mill Hospital, I jumped at the chance. Since attending, my overall control has been vastly improved. I just which I had known about it sooner.
