Re: [IPu] IP AUS Only ? / NDSS Infusion Subsidy One day ... ?



Hi Tori,

Someone on this list had been told by a Disetronic contact that Infusions
would be available in February 2003.  It sounded genuine (a price for NDSS
was mentioned) so that's why I contacted DA Nationally and at the state
level.  Oh well ... we live in hope or NDSS subsidy (or snow in Sydney).
Regards,
Janette
