    Yay! Fab news! :) I'm sure if you get in touch with the clinic they'll be able to tell you which pumps they have available. My clinic told me at the very beginning which pumps they had available. :) Good luck. I've just started on my pump last Monday, it's a bit of work getting the levels set up but so far I'm loving it! :)

    I think in Scotland you can only get the Medtronic Minimed 640g.
