    Hi guys

    Did a re-order for my daughters supplies and was told that the flex-link is being discontinued from Autumn 2019.
    Last hospital visit a fortnight ago nothing was mentioned and we were none the wiser so didn’t bring it up. Anyone got a clue what the alternatives are and are they ok? Currently Niamh is fine with changing her cannula - will the new one be ok!!

    Thanks

    As far as I know the Flex is still available, however the Flex Link which is the Flex Cannula combined in same package with the tubing is not. So you can still get the Flex and the seperate Tubing. I'll be ordering next week so can double check.

    I was told that by Roche it was only the flex link plus was being stopped and I had to move over to the normal flex link.
    Had to get special disclosure from DSN so that I could move over. It took ages and not sure which end the fault was at.
