Hi, I agree and apologies I didn't include the model which was the MP mlh+ which we were considering for our palliative care as well as IV antibiotic delivery and pain management. We currently use the T34 syringe driver so could at least compare the Micrel with this but unfortunately, it's some way behind. Although we have some in-patient services we are predominantly a community trust so it's essential we can leave a syringe driver with the patient at home without concerns about safety but our users had serious reservations about doing this.

Interesting. I'm wondering what the reservations were ... I'm sure the manufacturer and local agent(s) would like to know.

Here's my guess:- the lockbox. smile

HI - resurrecting an old thread to ask what you decided?

We have both community and inpatient service and have used T34's for years. Recently purchased the Version 3's and are keeping them on the inpatient unit as the battery life make community use impractical at best.
Our Community drivers are well past their official user life and starting to show this.

We need a viable alternative for community palliative care.

I have the rep coming next month.

Price wise they are still around the £1000 each and the lockbox situation is a discussion point.
