My son Andrew, now aged 4, was diagnosed with the condition in August last year and I am gathering support to campaign for a full-time DSN to be appointed. It is a real worry being left without the support of a DSN, we now have no-one to call on if we have any problem with the care of our son. Our DSN has recently helped us train up our sons school to deal with his condition and we now no longer have the support for follow up training. As Andrew is on an insulin pump we relied on our DSN if we had any problems with the pump as this is a very specialised area and the DSN is the only person who was available to us on a day to day basis who has in depth knowledge of this equipment. What do we do now??
To make matters worse, we have not been informed by the Children's Services that the DSN has now finished, this vital service has been withdrawn and we as parents have only found out through word of mouth. We have been given no advice on who we can now call if we need the services of a DSN or who to contact if we have a query with with our sons Diabetic care. I have personally contacted Mr James Scott, General Manager of Children's Services who had promised to keep me informed of any development but have as yet had no notification of whats actually happening.
