Hi all wanting to find out why areas offer such different options and I will have to change from Omnipod and Libre to a tubed pump. Although not keen but pump review now overdue. Do not fund Omnipod 5 . I do exercise every day .

I'm guessing its down to both cost and whether the nurses in the hospitals in the CCG area have training with the specified pumps

I know when I got my pump (2020) it was a choice of one if you didn't need it to work with sensors or a choice of one of you did need one with sensors (which was quite a fight at the time) - luckily I got one with sensors but the local DN's at the hospital knew very very little about it as they'd had no training for it

I too was given a choice of one tubed pump … or injecting.
When i asked for a tubeless pump, I was told OmniPod was too expensive and my clinic rather offer ”cheaper” pumps to more people.
Thankfully, my clinic was later offered a trial on Medtrum which I have been using ever since as It is not as expensive as OmniPod but still tubeless.
