Commissioning Statement Process – updated August 2018
Flash Glucose Monitoring – Updated July 2019
We have been 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 to agree a single policy for all nine clinical commissioning groups.
A Flash Glucose commissioning policy for West Yorkshire and Harrogate has been approved and will start to implement the NHS England guidance regarding “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.
There are available adult and paediatric patient agreement forms for Flash Glucose Monitoring here.
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.
