    "The device will, subject to local health authority approval, be available on the NHS across the United Kingdom from 1st November 2017."

    So I don't think anyone will have it yet and it will still be down to your local health authority whether they will prescribe it and to whom.

    Why did your consultant request it in June when it wasn't NICE approved?
