Can anybody please help me.  I am the 65 year old  husband of a lovely 61 year old lady who does not want to worry me over her diabetes. She is type one, on insulin injections 5 times a day. She does try to manage her diabetes but has had several hypo's recently. (She does see her diabetic nurse but that doesn't help educate me in any way).  The last one left me in a bit of a panic.  We were on holiday and I was actually recovering from surgery and could not drive (legally).  I had to drive home!  Anyway, I needed to get her to where she felt safe so that was my priority. I did give her a drink of sweet tea and a mars bar.  As well as her dextrose sweets/tablets. I need to be more confident in what to do so as to reassure her too.  She is my absolute priority so PLEASE can anybody point me in the direction of some sort of course/education so that I can help her.  I tried a while ago but then got complacent.  BIG mistake.   Any advice or help would be appreciated so much. I'm not asking for myself, I just want to help a most wonderful woman.Thank you so much for reading this.  Kind regards, Keith

Coronavirus - useful information

The latest health information about Coronavirus can be found at

Information and updates about our services can be found on this website here.

As of Wednesday 21 October, after reviewing the guidance for visiting as set out by NHSE, the Trust has taken the difficult decision to suspend visiting to all of our sites, with immediate effect.  We have taken this decision to limit the spread of Covid-19, and to protect vulnerable patients and ensure staff safety.  As soon as it possible to safely relax the visiting restrictions we will do so

From Monday 15 June 2020, visitors and outpatients coming into our hospitals will be asked to wear a face covering at all times, to help us reduce the spread of Covid-19.  A face covering can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head.  It should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably.  For more information click here
