Re: [IPk] Pumps with no funding

Hi Allan
Yes, you can buy your pump yourself and pay for your own supplies until you
get funding, if you have the funds to do that. 
The problem with that is that you might never get funding, so I think you
need to be prepared not to get funding at all in this case.
With both pump companies, you get a free month's trial, although you would
have to pay for the consumables still.
  Some LHAs will be more happy just to fund the consumables if they don't
have to buy the pump too. Illogical, because in the long term the
consumables cost far more than the pump, but they often tend to look only
at the short term. 
P.S. Allan, please can you turn off the html in your posts? It causes
problems for many of us.
