    November 2022: Medtronic pump upgrades via loyalty program

    After careful consideration, the RCH Diabetes Team has made the decision not to participate in the Medtronic Loyalty Program updating Medtronic 600 series pumps to the 700 series. It has not been an easy decision for us to make, but whilst we currently have families waiting to start insulin Pump Therapy we do not feel we would be providing a fair and equitable service for all patients if we were to reallocate staff to upgrading Pumps before they are out of warranty. 

    If you have any questions or concerns regarding this decision please contact the Diabetes Allied Health Team Manager or telephone: 9345 5926.
