All this is interesting as when i want on a pump(animas2020) about
18months ago- i was intially shown onepump. then when the funding came
through(5 months) given a choice of 3 - i think one was a veo - I chose
on how it felt,looked ....... i liked the animas screen and simple up
down buttons. the only complaint i would have are recently sometimes
the buttons dont press in aswell (or maybe its my nails). I have never
contacted animas except for supplies. MycDSN and I work it out.
Basically we looked through book together when no t sure - and heror
Dr made changes to basal according to my readings .

But it's not Derriford who are funding the pump. So they don't buy
Cornwall would. So it doesn't matter what contracts they have in
The Cornwall PCT doesn't send Derriford a cheque for them to go and
your pump....at least I'd be very surprised if they did! As long as
fund it, you can ring up Animas yourself and order it. I did that
my new Medtronic pump (I actually got the pump before the PCT had
agreed the funding for the replacement, because my old pump was
and I told Medtronic that my PCT were going to fund the new one, and
they sent it to me in advance of getting the funding). The hospital
never even saw my new pump, let alone dealt with Medtronic.
