According to the results from the 2017 National Diabetes Inpatient Audit, almost one in five (18 per cent) people with diabetes who use insulin experienced at least one insulin error whilst in hospital.
With the aim to raise awareness of insulin safety, the West Hampshire community diabetes service will be running some drop in session for health care professionals to learn more about insulin care.
The sessions are as follows:
Monday 14 May – 1.00pm-2.00pm – Moorgreen Hospital (outside Lead education room)
Wednesday 16 May – 1.30pm-2.30pm – Newton house, Eastleigh

Thursday 17 May – 1.30pm-2.30pm – Avalon House, Community Nurses Hub
