    Any other good guides you can recommend?

    I found this guide useful: healthline.com/diabetesmine/an-insulin-pump-guide-diabetesmine#current-insulin-pumps

    but it's the US market though...

    This is the list of gadgets currently on offer from the NHS approved list (this changes quite a bit over time).

    I was told in March the Medtrum and Roche weren't available and the Dana-i might come on the list September 2022 by my pump renewal team at Derby.

    Some clinics only offer 1 pump, whilst others offer more @CheeseSeaker. Roche stopped production of their tubed pumps last year, and won't be restarting. Anyone looking to get a pump needs to check with their own clinic which pumps their area offers.
