Re: [IPu] British Situation ?

The system in the UK is completely different to the NDSS one. To obtain a
pump through their health scheme you apply through your GP to your local
health board for approval. The information appears on the UK web Site. The
local health board then decides if they can justify you getting a pump on a
'cost saving' basis.
