    Hi does anyone know if diabetics are able to get a Radar key for the disabled toilets. On occasions I've needed to change my infusion set as I've ripped it out trying clothes on or I've got an occlusion. I don't want to have to stand in a massive queue and moreso I would like washing facilities inside the loo instead of stares from others whilst I wash my hands before I go into the loo.

    If you do a google search it will identify several suppliers for this item. There seems to be no restriction on application, but I have not tried it myself. A genuine key should have NKS stamped on it.

    I bought one from local council a few years ago for about £3.50, can't remember if I had to justify why it was needed but probably not as I bought two
