Request

I am looking for some information pertaining to a project I am undertaking regarding continuous glucose monitoring device access. I would be grateful if you could answer the following questions, and where appropriate attach document links:

  1. Does your CCG have a policy, or fall under a pan-area policy, on the use and funding of Continuous Glucose Monitoring devices? (Yes/No)
  2. If answered Yes to question 1), is there documentation outlining the details of the policy, and could you attach a link? 
  3. If answered No to question 1), how is CGM currently funded within your CCG? (e.g. not commissioned/ routinely commissioned/ routinely commissioned within the scope of the NICE guidance/ Individual Funding Request/patient self-funded/ Hospital funded etc.)

Response

From 1 April 2019 these devices will be funded by the CCG, in line with NICE guidance.
