My 9 year old son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in feb and was very ill with it. We were admitted onto the childrens assessment unit and after a weekend stay was allowed home. The diabetic nurses are fantastic and are always around whenever you need them. They help all the time with insulin doses and are always very polite and talk to my son with respect, they never talk to me about him as through he isn't in the room. Colchester has a wonderful childrens diabetic team and I'm so glad we are under their care. :)
