    Are they truly considering taking test strips and pen needles off NHS prescription to save £68M (the annual bonus of some of the countries' CEO's) - seems a little misguided to me.

    I saw this news article today and came here to ask the same question. The article didn't specify if this will affect all types of diabetes or maybe for t2s. Either way it's a shortsighted decision.
