Re: [IPk] Re: replacement meter

Glucose meters are not available on prescription, only the test strips are
available. But saying this, many diabetes clinics receive free meters from
the manufacturers and some of these clinics give them out to patients. The
manufacturers make their profit from the strips which means that the more
meters that they can distribute, the more strips are used and this keeps the
manufacturers happy. Most makes of strips cost in the neighbourhood of #20 to
#30/box of 50, about 50p/strip, though I suspect that the NHS can buy these
