Needles and Airport Security!

Since the Christmas Airport security breach there has been a lot of media attention and government discussions on the subject. At the weekend The Mail on Sunday had sent a reporter through airport security with insulin and needles, they were upset that he had not been stopped – so they were calling for better security checks. If he had have been checked he would have been able to show them his medical documents to say he is a diabetic and needs the medication on him.

This made me think as I got a GP letter a couple of years ago, however this has my maiden name on. I will make sure I get an update letter from my GP explaining I am a type 1 diabetic and need to keep insulin and needles on me, before I next fly.

You may want to make sure your GP letter is up-to-date!

Until next time x
