Hi

It’s my understanding that diabetics only get free prescriptions if they are on Insulin or Tablets, if you are what’s classed as diet controlled, which is whe we are after a bypass you don’t qualify for the free prescriptions. That’s my understanding of the rules, unless I am wrong And I am obviously more than happy to be proved wrong. Still I have 18 months left on my certificate so plenty of time to get this sorted. I will be seeing my GP next week, he is normally very helpful so hopefully he will see it my way.

Fingers crossed

Paul
