The MHRA has issued a Medical Device Alert for Accu-Chek Insight Insulin pump system manufactured by Roche Diabetes Care due to risk of over- or under-infusion of insulin.

Inadequately detailed handling instructions of the 'Key Lock' function of the pump may lead to unintentional operation, which could result in rapid and severe deterioration of health, including hypoglycaemia or diabetic ketoacidosis.

Healthcare professionals should undertake actions to identify users of the pump and ensure that they are aware of the handling instructions by 8 September and complete actions by 22 September.
