Letter: Who is the leader of pack?

Anne Walton

What an excellent article in your last issue, under the heading ‘DSNs: Are you a sheep, a queen bee or a goose?’. How very accurate the analogies are. I am sure we can all identify with one or more of these categories.

It seems a shame, however, that it was written by some ‘hounds’; animals that are very courageous when in a pack formation – assured of anonymity – but never wanting to perform, and be identified, individually.

For those of us who are professionally involved in the field of diabetes, it would have been interesting to  know who it was that submitted such a thought provoking piece.
