Stuart McMillan 30th May 2012

Question S4W-07465: Stuart McMillan, West Scotland, Scottish National Party, Date Lodged: 30/05/2012

To ask the Scottish Executive how many additional insulin pumps will be provided to adults in 2012-13, broken down by NHS board.

Answered by Nicola Sturgeon (13/06/2012):

The Chief Executive Letter issued on 27 February 2012 made it clear that we expect the number of insulin pumps for both adults and children to triple over the next three years.

We have provided £2.5 million worth of funding to purchase insulin pumps and the associated consumables to support NHS boards in achieving this commitment.

We will be closely tracking the progress that boards make in increasing insulin pump provision throughout Scotland and the results will be published in the annual Scottish Diabetes Survey.
