NHS to provide Flash Glucose Monitoring

13th May 2019

The NHS have announced that from April 2019 flash glucose monitoring will be available on prescription for those patients with cystic fibrosis related diabetes who meet the criteria.

This still won’t mean everyone who could benefit from Flash will be able to access it. There are clear criteria that need to be met in order to be eligible for access on the NHS. It cannot be prescribed by the hospital and you will need to discuss access to this system with your GP. For more information go to the  NHS England  and diabetes uk website.
