UPDATE

TAKE OUR SURVEY!

How do you find getting your repeat prescriptions from your

doctor's surgery, and what about dealing with your local pharmacy?

The people at Now Patient have asked me to ask you - so we've

put together this survey. With something that for most of us is a

life-long condition needing medication for the foreseeable future,

we all have to remember to stock up, plan ahead, save drawer

space ready for items. How many repeat prescriptions have I

had to request over my more than four decades of living with

T1D? They're certainly quite a big feature in my life (in keeping

me alive, in fact). Please take the survey to tell us about your

experience. I'm interested to see how you each have fared,

then see overall as a group what our frustrations are.

From what I know of it, Now Patient is a super service especially for those who find

it tricky to keep on top of their supplies, or to go in person to GPs and pharmacies.

There is no obligation at all to sign up to their services, but there's an option to hear

more about them at the end of the survey. There are 13 quick questions. Please take

a look and take part! I'll publish the restults in the next issue. When you get to the

end of the survey, there's an option to see the results to date. - Editor, Sue Marshall

As previously advised, Animas' goal is to

transition all patients globally to another

insulin delivery system and exit the market

fully by September 2019. On 15 January

2019 the company wrote to all Trusts/

Health boards in the UK to offer the

following support to healthcare providers

to assist with transition of patients from

Animas pumps to alternative insulin

delivery systems.

Animas is offering a refund program

for all pumps with warranties expiring

on 1 October 2019 or later. Animas will

refund to Trusts part of the purchase

price of those pumps on a pro rata basis

determined by how many full months of

warranty are remaining on the date that

the patient is transitioned to an alternative

pump. The refund is conditional on the

Animas pump being returned to Animas

and is subject to terms and conditions (as

detailed in the letters sent to the Trusts/

Health boards). In order to participate,

Trusts / Health Boards need to sign up to

the program by 30 April 2019.

Animas has further stated that it

understands the pressures that this

situation has placed on the clinical teams

and that resource is required to transition

a patient on to a new insulin pump. The

company says that is has listened to the

needs of our customers and are pleased

to offer a Training Support Program at

no cost the to the Trust/Health Board. A

chosen partner, Apodi, has been engaged

to deliver an in-house, nurse-led training

and education plan to support diabetes

teams as they transition patients to an

alternative pump of the Trust/Health

Board's choice.
