    I was in my local hospital for a diabetic clinic appointment.
    On the wall was a poster

    Tayside Diabetes Patient and Carer Event
    Saturday 9th May

    Sandwich lunch will be provided.


    from this I presume that low-carb has not hit Tayside yet
    :D

    Perhaps Fergus is supplying the bread?

    Tubs and I attened a meeting about the NHS convention and they were very surprised when I asked for a salad lunch. Everyone else ate the sandwiches provided. I confess to pinching the lettuce and tomato garnish from the sandwich plates

    It certainly hasn't!

    However, I went to the event last year and it was excellent on research, drugs, technology - I just avoided the seminars on healthy eating and lunch. Am going again this year.

    When I went to choose a pump at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary a few weeks ago, the diabetic clinic thoughtfully provided doorstop sandwiches, cakes, chocolate biscuits and pure orange juice. I stuck to glass of water and was asked why I didn't want to eat anything! The nurse seemed very surprised when I told her that there was more carb in one sandwich than I'd eat over the course of a few days and that I was a little surprised at their being chocolate biscuits on offer!

    Idiots.

    None that I remember, other than a few leaflets and of course lots of orange juice and biscuits during breaks!
