[IPu] (Fwd) [IPk] Good news
I thought I'd forward this message from the UK list to all of you. It
raises the hope that your action in contacting "the powers that be"
will actually change the funding and availability of pumps in your
respective areas. Your pressure on legislators, medical boards, and
your efforts to educate both your medical professionals and others
with diabetes DOES HAVE AN EFFECT.
The folks in the UK have been working long and hard to get insulin
pumps and their supplies accepted as standard treatment for diabetes
for a long time. Those efforts are beginning to pay off. Getting more
people involved with IP-NZ and IP-AUS will ultimately result in
similar results for you as well.

My PCT has decided to fund consumables for those who have already funded
their own pumps. Woohoo! Today I placed my first order with Disetronic for
which the PCT will be invoiced, and I've also just had a call from one of
the PCT directors telling me to forward him all my invoices since I got my
pump (July last year) so that I can be reiumbursed!
I would like to think that the letters I (and others like me) wrote to the
PCT helped to convince them to make this decision. Thanks to INPUT for all
the information they provided.
Karen (feeling very happy!)
