DH to investigate ‘bonkers’ rationing of diabetes testing strips

Comment

This makes me so angry. In the long run poorly controlled diabetes will cost more! I was stood in Tesco a few days ago when a lady behind me bragged to her friend that she doesn't pay for her E45- she gets it prescribed for free by her GP for eczema that she hasn't had for years. She recommended her friend put the E45 she was buying back on the shelf and go to her GP and ask for the same. We're a load of mugs who pander to those who don't need help- but people with an actual health problems get totally screwed. I'm beginning to hate this job. Australia is looking good.
