Please see the communication received from NHS England in relation to their position and guidance for many topics regarding access to technology in Type 1 diabetes. This is a very topical issues and I believe will be an important document to help us ensure that people with Type 1 diabetes are not denied access to these important technological advances in Type 1 diabetes and also avoid creating a postcode lottery.  Please circulate it to all relevant stakeholders in your health economy.

The most up to date information is that 49 CCG have already made positive decisions and allowed access to Free Style Libre. While this is progress, we would like this to be uniform across the board.
