In this issue there is more info and advice on the coronavirus, including the news of Abbott’s donation of 6,500 of its FreeStyle Libre sensors to the NHS to help with the care of people with both diabetes and Covid-19.
Despite many things being on hold, the fact is that there is still plenty of news out there, so this issue is rammed with info. CE Marks for Dexcom’s sensor and Medtronic’s MiniMed 780G pump. Leicester Diabetes Centre team expands. James Norton’s JDRF insta-cast with Professor Partha Kar. And there’s a new introductory offer on Medtrum’s new, slimmer TouchCare sensor.
Our cover feature acknowledges how we’ve probably all gone a bit ‘virtual’ due to lockdown. We talk to Zara Zyed, chief pharmacist at Spirit Pharmacy, about ordering prescriptions online. There’s also some lighter-weight stories on the innovation that’s come out of the food and drinks sector as a result of the very strange set of Covid-related circs. Stay safe friends.
