Prescribing of FreeStyle Libre® on the NHS in Tower Hamlets

FreeStyle Libre® is to be used on the NHS in Tower Hamlets in accordance with the pan-London consensus prescribing guidance, facilitated by the NHS London Procurement Partnership and the NHS London Diabetes Clinical Network.

GPs will not be initiating the prescribing of FreeStyle Libre® sensors. Any initiation will only be carried out by the Barts Health NHS Trust specialist diabetes team for patients with type 1 diabetes that meet the recommended criteria. This is also the case for patients self-funding.
