Request: How many NHS patients are filling prescriptions for Type 1 Diabetic pump supplies i.e. test strips? [On 5 October 2018 you clarified the following:] I am wanting to find out how many Type 1 Diabetic pump users there are in the UK. I am realising that both Type 1 and 2 Diabetics use test strips so that will not help me know the no of pump users. Also that my pump was supplied by my primary care trust and then peripherals are supplied to me free by the pump manufacturer but the NHS pays for these, so there must be records of how many patients are receiving pump peripherals (on a regular basis) from pump manufacturers?(in my case from Medtronic) It would again make sense to request data during the most recent one year period for which you have a complete dataset? Many Thanks & BW for now
