  1. Thanks for the opportunity of joining the #dsma party… even tho everyone’s gone home now :)

    Q1. Someone who listens. Someone who treats me as a partner in my own care. Someone who is completely up to date with latest research/diabetes care strategies
    Q4. Nope, not really. Mostly I just wing it! I do discuss what’s worked and what hasn’t and what I might try next at my annual review though.
    Q4.5. No. Always open to suggestions. Similarly my team are receptive to my own ideas on insulin changes.
