'Flash' Glucose Monitoring in Diabetes (FreeStyle Libre)

The CCG agreed in February 2018 to adopt recommendations made by the Hampshire & IOW Priorities Committee (H&IOWPC) about the commissioning of ‘flash’ glucose monitoring systems, such as FreeStyle Libre.

Since then the CCGs across this area have been discussing the issue with specialist staff at Portmsouth hospitals NHS Trust, and the details of how the recommendations will work in practice have now been agreed. Those details can be found here.
