I have been initially turned down to receive cogucheck strips on prescription. I know that some (perhaps many) self-checkers do get these items funded. I'm perfectly happy to accept NO when it applies to everyone but not when I happen to fall the wrong side of a postcode boundary. That's discrimination as far as I'm concerned. I don't buy into local finance arguments. If it is deemed that the NHS can afford this then it should be available to all across the country. I'd appreciate an indication of how widespread this problem is and it would be helpful to establish what geographical areas allow/don't allow these things on prescription. Thanks.
