Glad that things are better Tig.
You need to be referred to DAFNE through your clinic or GP but be prepared for a long wait.
I applied in October 2007 and was given an appointment for July 2008. Luckily for me someone cancelled and I was contacted at short notice. If I'd been working it might have been difficult to arrange.
As with everything of benefit .. funding is desperately short.
In Cleveland there are only 4 courses a year. That's only 32 people who are given the opportunity to change to the DAFNE regime.
When you think of the saving hospitals could make by not having to deal with people with complications it seems criminal.
