Join in the conversation on Facebook: Northern Ireland insulin pump users & wannabes  or make contact via the ‘Contact us’ button at the top of the page.

INPUT only hears about the delays/difficulties people face in trying to access insulin pump therapy.  From what we hear, it seems like insulin pump therapy can be extremely difficult to access in Northern Ireland.

NICE TA151 has been adopted by the DHSSPSNI – link – but is not mandatory in NI like in England.  However, the Department expects them to be implemented.
