Flash Glucose Monitoring – Update May 2019

We are currently working with diabetes specialists in West Yorkshire and Harrogate to update our policies on flash glucose monitoring, following the publication of new guidance from NHS England, and agree a single policy for all nine clinical commissioning groups. Some Interim WY&H guidance for Flash Glucose Monitoring  has been developed which describes the responsibilities of specialist, GP and patient.

Until a single policy has been agreed the 7 CCGs of the South West Yorkshire Area Prescribing Committee will start to implement the NHS England guidance “Flash Glucose Monitoring: National Arrangements for Funding of Relevant Diabetes Patients.”  The Diabetes Specialist Teams in local areas will be responsible for assessing whether patients meet the criteria in this guidance, starting flash glucose monitoring and ongoing review.  The continued  supply of the flash glucose monitoring sensors will transfer to the patients GP practice.


Items which should not routinely be prescribed in Primary Care: Guidance for CCGs

Following the publication of the above NHSE guidance to CCGs; the SWYAPC CCGs intend to commission in line with the guidance and align the Commissioning Statements.

The SWYAPC have produced a letter to inform Community Pharmacies in Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield of the local plans regarding the NHSE guidance.
