    Here's a reminder of the #gbdoc hosted conference for people with diabetes on 27-28 February 2016.

    Get full details and book your tickets here: http://www.peoplewithdiabetesconference.com
    It's organised and run by people with diabetes and for people with diabetes (and friends and family if they're interested). Sponsored by Team Blood Glucose (http://www.teambloodglucose.com/TeamBG/Home.html)

    It's all about us. It's about sharing our hints, tips and everyday solutions with other, like minded people with diabetes. Sharing stories, learning from each other and discovering that you are not the only one who have ‘those’ issues with living with diabetes.

    This year the conference will be held at the beautiful Colwick Hall in Nottingham. The event is being held over two days, with lunches and one evening meal included in the two day ticket price.

    The conference will be run using an open space format - the agenda gets set by those who attend, so you get to discuss whatever matters most to you.
    There is also a 'pay it forward' scheme so that if you're able, you can make a donation towards others who are not quite so financially secure in order to make the event as accessible as possible. Anyone who has difficulty affording a place please email [email protected]

    Tickets are now FREE.

    Get full details and book your tickets here: http://www.peoplewithdiabetesconference.com

    For those who have already bought tickets, entry fee refunds will be available if you choose, or you can donate your fee to the running of the event. As we do still need to fund the cost of refreshments throughout the weekend, we would welcome donations towards the cost of lunch, tea & coffee at £10 per person per day.

    There is also a 3-course evening meal on Saturday, which is limited to 150 spaces, and has a compulsory £25-per-head charge on the meal. If you have already purchased a weekend ticket, we have already reserved you a seat. If you wish to join the meal, please write to the email [email protected] by Friday 12th February.

    Also, if you’ve already bought a ticket, please email us again by Friday 12th February, otherwise your original payment will be retained as a donation to the running of the event.
    If you have any questions, please contact [email protected].

    This sounds so brilliant. Who's going? I'm in Jutland, Denmark, so alas, not me. Tim, you going?

    What a great approach to a conference.

    Best quote from last year's get together - "One that day, and in that room, with the clicking sound of lancets as we played #bgbingo I felt like I was normal"
