Re: [IPk] Welcome to Peter Simunovic



There is no money in the NHS. That is why people are struggling to get
pumps. It's nothing to do with meeting criteria any more. I'm very lucky to
have a pump, but now that I have one i feel so much better. If you can
afford it buy one yourself. Best of luck. Sorry it's grim news.
