On Tuesday 18 October Mike Coombs and Mike Broome attended the Gloucester Royal Hospital’s Paediatric diabetes parents evening at the Holiday Inn, Barnwood. The evening is arranged so the parents of children with Type 1 diabetes can get together to
talk and also to hear updates on what’s happining the the yo hear presentation from the medical staff on what’s happening in the Paediatric Diabetes Unit and the latest research and treatments available.
Mike Broome also gave a short talk on the Gloucester Group, explaining who we were and what we do to support the local diabetes community. An immediate example of this is the Group agreed to sponsor the evening by paying for the hire of the room, as the Paediatric Diabetes Unit do not receive any NHS or hospital funding for the event.
The evening went very well and both Mikes spoke to quite a few of the medical staff and parents whio were there.
