Launch of Hospital Passports
Following the release of information about the numbers of people with diabetes in hospital at any one time and the problems that can occur, IDDT has launched the Hospital Passport. This will help people with diabetes when they go into hospital by providing vital Information about their diabetes and how they manage their treatment. It also enables people to include information about all their medicines, their mealtimes, diet and any allergies.
We hope that people with diabetes will be able to take the opportunity of using the Hospital Passport whenever they are admitted to Hospital and that health professionals will give them to their patients.
