Prescription lottery

After several days of success in London it was almost reassuring to get back to Leicestershire NHS chaos, this time involving my insulin supply. I use two distinct types, both pork derivatives , one long-acting (overnight) and one short-acting (daytime) . Simple? Not according to my GP or my pharmacy who seem able to supply only one of them. As a result I have a fridge full of short-acting insulin but close to running out of the long-acting, which is obviously far from ideal. After several trips to the pharmacy and my GP it appears the problem may have been resolved, but I'm not holding my breath.
It is only a matter of life or death (mine) after all.
