DH to investigate ‘bonkers’ rationing of diabetes testing strips

Comment

Surely more bonkers that the NHS do not make there own purpose built glucose monitors that only their sticks will fit, - Nhs could then control the price. We could then decline to prescribe all the new ones! I've watched my Dad( in his 7os) try to learn how to use his new one- osteoarthritic fingers far too clumsy. Surely a patient group with a decent OT could design a new one for the NHS to patent?
