    Hi All,

    At present I'm at Barnet Hospital Diabetes Clinic, but I'm unhappy there. I want to change clinic.

    I started the Medtronic 640g in November last year.

    I would like to be part of a diabetes team that is centred around caring, education, mutual respect, partnership, mutual responsibility, agreed goal-setting, empowerment, active listening and support of physical & mental well-being. Not much!! Ha! Ha! ;) I am describing an ideal - dream state:happy:

    Seriously ... I have been let down :banghead: :bigtears:... have lost all confidence in my diabetes team ... but where do I go? :(:confused:

    I have made appointment to see my GP to ask for a referral but have no idea where to go?!

    I live in Barnet, London. Any help would be appreciated!

    Catherine

    Hi Catherine,

    I'm sorry you're unhappy where you are.
    I'll tag in @ewelina for you. She organises London meet ups & may just know someone who can help?
