    I found some country skins, had to include this because it has Canada :) sadly couldn't find an England one though :(

    Also I think NovoPen Echo may be cheaper in the long run I saw on Amazon it costs £43 obviously the NHS get it cheaper, I know that a five pack of NovoRapid pre-filled costs £30 as I caught I glimpse on my GPs screen when ordering it once :p It's the same insulin in both pens, but the pre-filled pens themselves must cost a few pound to produce a pack of five and average this over the 4-5 years the memory of the Echo pen lasts it will prove very cost effective.

    So they really should give you one :)

    No Canadian scientists Banting and Macleod were the first to use insulin for humans, I'm English :p

    You could try contacting Novo Nordisk, I guess although the phone call might cost a bit :bored:

    I like the different coloured pens to differentiate the insulin being used but does anyone know a source of different-coloured cases? No open cases seem to be all blue but a lot of the others you can buy are just black. I'm always using them at the bottom of my bag!
