    I have been accepted by my consultant to have the accu chek combo pump, this was about 2 weeks ago,
    I was wondering what is the time frame from getting the go-ahead to actually getting it. Is it weeks, months or when?
    It's awful that they say yes, and then nothing.... I hate being in the dark.


    (I posted this earlier, but in the wrong place.)

    I think it varies from area to area. I'm in mid Wales and from being approved in June/July it was November before I was started on the pump. That was in 2011 so processes might have speeded up by now.

    With the new Accu-Chek Insight pump due out anytime now. I would wait or make sure you can exchange the Combo when the new one is available.
