We offer a dedicated Insulin Pump Review Clinic which is staffed by an Endocrinologist and Diabetes Educator.
What we do
In this clinic, you will be seen by a doctor (Endocrinologist) for a general review. The Diabetes Educator will then see you and upload the pump data. We analyse the data and make changes to the pump settings in collaboration with the doctor.
Education and support is given around how to best use the pump for your individual needs.
Who we care for
This clinic provides multidisciplinary care for people with Type 1 Diabetes on insulin pump therapy.
