Thanks for replying Alison. Yeah, I’ve tried the manufacturers and asked for that data but they said that info was confidential, even knowing the situation! Not very helpful! I think I might try again though.
There will of course be no medical reason for anyone to be given a patch pump over a tubed pump because they behave in exactly the same way, the added benefits that I and many others feel it gives you that seems small and insignificant to some, are actually huge and very significant to us and can’t be measured on a tangible scale unfortunately. I guess it’s all down to personal choice and that choice being made available to everyone, not just a few depending on their postcode. If it’s too expensive and ineffective, then why offer it at all?
