hi ive had type 1 for 5 years now and my nurse just introduced me to these pumos.iv been told that you are put on a waiintg list on the NHS but the list is very long , on the good side tough you can buy it privatly (just the pump) then get the small components like the tubing and the injection part on prescriptions.the pump is a small cost in money whe you compare it to the waiintg list on the NHS
