Re: [IPk] Re:Funding

Hi Ian

I went back to Guys earlier this month and got the go ahead to keep the pump
from Prof. Pickup.  When I questioned him re the funding he told me that I
was funded now.  However, when I rang Minimed for more supplies last week
they asked me how I would be paying and seemed very surprised when I said I
was funded!  Prof. Pickup said to tell them to sort it out with Guy's as I'm
under a different PCT so I'll just have to wait and see if anything arrives.
