#2

Oh ok - if this is free then you should be '0.00' in the price and i'd put a comment to say that it normally costs £29.

Note its only available for insulin users (just went through T&C's) but seems a good product for diabetics

figured it out - set it to 0!

Thanks for posting this. This looks to be a very good deal for someone with diabetes. You should edit your post to show £0.00 though, and maybe a moderator could move it to the freebies section.

Sorry - I literally only joined today! Taken me a few attempts to get it! How can I move it to freebies?

Blood glucose monitors are free anyway to diabetics. You just need to ask your doctor to prescribe one (along with lancets and testing strips). In fact, diabetics qualify for free prescriptions.

Absolutely right, my youngest daughter is a type one diabetic and gets these via the NHS.

Go back to your doctor and ask him to put the lancets and test strips on repeat prescription. You didn't have to buy a thing, Incidentally, why did you need to get another meter if your son was only diagnosed 11 months back?

Prescriptions are only free for Diabetics with Type 1.
Also these free meters come up in various shapes and sizes for free in pretty much every issue of Balance magazine (published every two months – is free of charge to members of Diabetes UK)

Wrong. People with diabetes mellitus (i.e. type 2) qualify for free prescriptions as long as they are on medication for their diabetes.

http://www.patient.co.uk/health/Free-or-Reduced-Cost-Prescriptions.htm

Who can get an exemption certificate?

People who have certain medical conditions

Although there are many conditions requiring regular medication, only the following qualify for an exemption certificate:

* Treatment for cancer; note this includes treatment for the effects of cancer, or treatment for the effects of a current or previous cancer treatment. (Not available for patients in Scotland.)
* A permanent fistula requiring dressing.
* Forms of hypoadrenalism such as Addison's disease.
* Diabetes insipidus and other forms of hypopituitarism.
* Diabetes mellitus except where treatment is by diet alone.
* Hypoparathyroidism.
* Myxoedema (underactive thyroid) or other conditions where thyroid hormone replacement is necessary.
* Myasthenia gravis.
* Epilepsy requiring continuous anti-convulsive medication.
* A continuing physical disability which means you cannot go out without help from another person.

If you have one of the specified conditions ask for an application form (FP92A England and EC92A Scotland - clearly marked 1 January 2009) from your doctor's surgery. You need to fill it in and your doctor (or an authorised member of the practice staff) will sign to confirm the information you've given is correct. You will then be sent a Medical Exemption Certificate.

If you have a Medical Exemption Certificate all your prescriptions are free, whatever the medication is for.

Thanks, I've ordered one for my dad :)
#26
I'm typw 2 (medication and diet controlled) and I got one free just by asking the practice nurse at my GP's

Then I get the test strips etc free on prescription

AFAIK thats the same for all diabetics in the UK (stress the AFAIK bit there though)
