Re: [IPk] Welcome to Peter Simunovic



Hi Steve

People are indeed struggling to get pumps, but there IS sufficient money
in the NHS for pumper's needs.  If anyone is being refused a pump on
cost grounds, please contact INPUT - either pump guru himself John
Davis, or me.  It won't usually be sorted immediately, but it will be
sorted.
