A leading charity says children with diabetes are being discriminated against in Jersey.
At the moment, the government pays for an insulin pump for adults - which can transform a patient's life - but that funding is not available for children.
The charity also says there is a lack of support for children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes in regard to their psychological care.
States Members say change is coming and the funds for the pumps will be available next year but there's no timescale on when this might be.
It is thought 8-10 children with type 1 diabetes in Jersey could benefit from an insulin pump.
In Guernsey, insulin pumps are available for children and adults who are interested and meet the clinical criteria for pump therapy as per NICE Guidance and U.K best practice.
