I just saw this in the IDDT Magazine. We all get insulin, needles etc on the NHS. Given the fact we all pay tax, that's fair enough. Please DO NOT claim for things that you can sort out with food. An alternative to basically taking advantage of the NHS in this manner is buying jelly babies or 'full fat' coke. Taking advantage of situations like this will make things worse for us in the long run. The NHS is already overstretched, and the Tory government is looking to get rid of it altogether - don't help them by being cheap-skates - you do not need to get this stuff on the NHS. Doing so is just being utterly selfish. I actually cannot believe that the magazine was dumb enough to post this. Please use your heads!! Thanks.
