[IPk] Naive question

Hello UK people :)

Here in Australia, we get very limited funding for diabetic supplies, 
especially pump supplies. A member of the Australian pumpers mailing list 
is designing a survey so that some of our inequities can be addressed (eg. 
people on MDI get free syringes and needles, those on pumps pay for ALL 
supplies, including reservoirs. cannulas etc).

I have been asked to try and ascertain exactly which kinds of infusion 
sets/cannulas are supplied to pumpers in the UK free of charge? I do 
realise this is a very complex area and depends heavily on PCTs and their 
available funding, but I am curious to know if there are "standard" sets 
that are supplied, and more "extravagant" sets that are not?

Any help greatly appreciated!
