    'If you are not deemed suitable for an insulin pump on the NHS then the cost of funding a pump privately is considerable. Insulin pumps cost between £1000 and £3000. There are additional costs for the consumable attachments, eg infusion sets, batteries and pump reservoirs, which you may also have to pay for yourself. Consumables could amount to between £1000 and £2000 per year.
