INPUT Patient Advocacy is a UK charity with a mission to help people access appropriate diabetes technology and support for its use from the NHS, including insulin pumps, smart glucose meters and continuous glucose monitoring. INPUT is run by people with type 1 diabetes and their families.
Over much of the last decade, the UK has lagged by other European countries, such as Germany and Norway, in its provision of insulin pumps
INPUT provides advocacy for people that are struggling to get funding for Continuous Subcutaneous Insulin Infusion therapy (insulin pump therapy) and also provides information on:
- the process of obtaining approval for insulin pump therapy
- smart blood glucose meters and
- continuous glucose monitoring usage
