    Hi all not been on here for quite some time and I apologise for that. Not sure if I am allowed to do this but my son has now changed to a different insulin pump and he has got quite a lot of supplies left over. Would anyone be interested in having them or should I take them back to the hospital? If there is any interest I will list them later. Also he has a Diabetic clinic appointment on 2nd August and will take them with us if there is no interest before that date.

    What a nice thought, @stoney . When I started pumping my starter pack contained a variety of infusion sets. The 40cm hosepipes were no good to me - and I did a swap at my second pump group appointment with a fellow new pumper for her stash of the 70cm ones, because she preferred the 40cm ones over the 70cm ones. Win win!

    A member of my diabetes team intimated that stuff that is not useable by a specific patient could be given to them so that if they were ever asked by a different specific patient 'oh you don't have any such-and-such, do you?' They would be able to say 'yes, we do, actually'.
