About Us

Welcome to Insulin Pumps Wales

The Wales National Insulin Pump Network (Insulin Pumps Wales) has been developed to work collaboratively across the diabetes community, with both people living with diabetes and health care professionals across Wales. Additionally we will work alongside stakeholders throughout the UK to develop and maintain the highest standard of care possible for people living with Type 1 diabetes in Wales.

Who is Insulin Pumps Wales for?

If you are currently on insulin pump therapy or wish to find out more about insulin pump therapy, then we can help you. We also look to work with people living with diabetes and the parents and carers of those living with Type 1 Diabetes to develop resources and improve access to knowledge of insulin pump therapy and related technology across Wales. This is achieved through both North Wales and South Wales Meet Ups - latest details of these events can be found here. – HyperLink to "Meet ups page" on "Patients Section" (RMa to put together content on this)
