Latest on Abbott FreeStyle Libre Flash Glucose Monitoring System

Our chairperson, Lawrence Glyn has been attending the quarterly Diabetes Network Meetings organised by the Leeds CCG which involve all the key players in Diabetes Care - CCG, Hospital Trusts, Consultants, Lead Nurses, Footcare, Communications Team etc. Lawrence was very interested to hear at a recent meeting that the issue surrounding the use of Libre Abbot flash glucose meters has gained a lot of support in Leeds and the Management Team at the CCG will be making final decisions on the criteria by which they will be issued to patients with Type 1 diabetes. This will be of tremendous support to those who feel that they need such a meter to manage their blood sugar levels more closely and appropriately - watch this site for more updates on this important issue.
