"Medway Adult Insulin Pump Service"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital / Diabetic medicine

(as the patient),

The support and care from the nurses is excellent. They give 100% support.

I am now very happy, healthy and my diabetes control very good and stable because of using the insulin pump. I have plenty of energy now.

Recently when something went wrong with my pump and had to go back on injection whilst waiting for a new pump I realised how much it had changed my life and needed it.

The nurses go out of their way to support you even though they are short staffed. I hope that they will get more nurses soon before one of the pump nurses goes away.

Good service Medway - keep up the good work.
