I had an accident what am I supposed to do?

You may be in a situation where you need medical attention for something other than diabetes, such as an accident or injury. This might involve a wait in the hospital for a while before being seen. Make sure you tell someone as soon as you arrive that you have diabetes and that you might need to eat to avoid going hypo (usually people are advised not to eat or drink while in A&E, in case they need surgery). If you feel you need to eat or drink, check with the staff first.
