[IPk] Pump Funding

Further to the funding note; Local Health Authorities will cease to exist in
April 2002. They will be replaced by Primary Care Trusts, so as we
understand it the funding route will be:

Patient approaches GP asking for funding, the application must have the
backing of the consultant & diabetes team. The GP will request funding from
the Primary Care Trust who will normally decide upon funding at a committee
meeting headed by the Commissioning Officer.

This procedure is not, as yet, written in tablets of stone but we know that
in some areas this is happening already. So give it a go.

Please keep us informed of developments.
