Abstract

Insulin pump services have been widely available in the UK for over 10 years. Despite this, the recent national Insulin Pump Audit identified that only 6% of patients with type 1 diabetes are managed with insulin pump therapy, far lower than anticipated. A key reason for the UK continuing to lag behind other European countries in the provision of insulin pump services is the lack of trained health care professionals. This paper aims to provide diabetologists and diabetes specialist nurses with a basic understanding of the clinical approach to the patient with type 1 diabetes on insulin pump therapy.
