We extremely grateful to Parth Narendran and Ali Karamat and team for developing the guide for those hospitalised on CSII and also to Peter Hammond and team for the development of the CSII clinical guide for adult services.

Diabetes UK – Diabetes Technology

In 2017 Diabetes UK spoke to around 9,000 people about what would help them to live well in the future with diabetes. Access to technologies was one of the highest priorities.

There is international recognition that people using diabetes technology are more likely to achieve optimal glucose levels, so ensuring uptake and support for patients and professionals to access these technologies is key.
