Information about the NHS funding of Freestyle libre for glucose monitoring

The FreeStyle Libre® Flash Glucose Monitoring system is not recommended for prescribing in primary care until an implementation plan for prescribing the sensors has been developed and agreed across the local healthcare system. 

The same decision has been made by NHS Newham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), NHS Tower Hamlets CCG and NHS Waltham Forest CCG. 

Please see a patient FAQ below which is available to download and explains the decision in more detail.
