    The Libre is only self funded :) - £100 per month
    Hopefully this will be available on the NHS soon

    I'm on the Omnipod too. Just got it in July last year after my diabetes team offered me pumps for a while which I didn't want (as I didn't want one with tubing). I was lucky that they were happy to get the Omnipod for me even though I am the first patient on it at my hospital. I think whether or not you're able to get it really depends on whether your hospital offers it. I think the Omnipod is great and wouldn't go back to MDI - so far I haven't had any problems with it at all. What I like is that you just press a button and then the cannula self inserts so you don't have to do it yourself (and you don't have to watch it ect!). Good luck and if you have any questions just shout:)

    Have to say, if Roche get it together and include CGM and something similar to the predictive suspend algo that Medtronic have created for the 640G as part of the insight, I will be gagging for a pump....

    It will be worth the wait when your Omnipod eventually arrives, I love mine it is wonderful not having all that tubing, which I seemed to always get caught on door handles

    I hope you're right - I am IMPATIENT!
    (And also exactly the kind of person that gets things caught on door handles :) )
