Approximately 15% of these have Type 1 diabetes, of whom approximately 15% are on insulin pump therapy.

We feel it is vital that individuals with diabetes have a full understanding of their condition and medications. Advantages to the service provided by our Diabetes Unit include ease of access to relevent knowledgeable diabetes healthcare professionals, consistency of approach whereby patients are "known" within the Unit (thereby reducing unnecessary repetition of information) and a truly patient centred approach which maximises the individuals ability to achieve the optimal level of diabetes control.
