Hi Maggie,

There are around 270 children currently using pumps in the UK. If you would
like to contact me when you know where abouts in the UK you will be based. I
will be able to point you towards a participating hospital and a fully pump
trained diabetes team.

In the meantime, if you would like further information, please contact me
off list, either by phone on 01590 677911 or by email at
