Within the next six months, Animas users need to be transitioned onto another pump of their choice. As previously advised, Animas’ goal is to transition all patients globally to another insulin delivery system and exit the market fully by September 2019.
Animas is offering a refund program for all pumps with warranties expiring on 1 October 2019 or later. The refund is conditional on the Animas pump being returned to Animas and is subject to terms and conditions (as detailed in the letters sent to the Trusts/ Health boards).
In order to participate, Trusts / Health Boards need to sign up to the program by 30 April 2019. A chosen partner, Apodi, has been engaged to deliver an in-house, nurse-led training and education plan to support diabetes teams as they transition patients to an alternative pump of the Trust/Health Board’s choice.
