Insulin Pump Therapy

The St Helens & Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust Specialist Diabetes Team offers support for:

o Insulin pump starts

o Insulin pump reviews

o Pump user training

During the COVID-19 crisis we are temporarily not starting any new patients on pumps because we cannot assure appropriate support for new starters at this time.

We are also advising ALL pump users of the critical importance of having in-date supplies of:
Insulin pens
Blood sugar testing equipment
Blood ketone testing equipment
