HC Deb 12 May 1992 vol 207 c83W
27. Mr. Bradley

To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether there are any plans to introduce pen injection systems on general practitioner prescriptions for people with diabetes.

Dr. Mawhinney

The addition of insulin pen systems to the list of items GPs may prescribe is the subject of continuing negotiations with manufacturers. New additions to the prescribable list must be subject to the availability of resources and decisions on other competing priorities.
