    Saw my consultant on Friday and he agreed that I now met the criteria as set out on April 1st this year and has agreed to prescribe it for me. Long long battle finally won.

    Hi, same here, I received mine on June 27th after a fight to get it.
    I hope it will be great help to you.
    Take care :)

    After self funding for over 3 years it's a great relief to finally get it.

    Having mine fitted tomorrow, hopefully massively reduce finger pricking!
