Insulin Pumps / Glucose Monitoring


As part of the ongoing review of clinical policies for all the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Lancashire and South Cumbria, we are now seeking views and comments on two new policies.

The latest draft clinical policies open for patient and public feedback are as follows:

• new policy for the supply and funding of insulin pumps for patients with Diabetes Mellitus
• a new policy for the provision of continuous glucose monitoring and flash glucose monitoring for patients with Diabetes Mellitus

The draft policies can be found below. You are invited and recommended to read the clinical policies before giving your feedback. You can click on the link next to each policy to complete a short survey and give your views.

There is a Frequently Asked Questions document that may answer any queries you have about the process or about these policies.

Your comments will be fed back to the CCG as part of the development process.

Comments on these policies should be submitted by Friday 29 June.

If you would prefer to have a hard-copy of the policy and/or of the survey questionnaire, please contact the CCG using the contact page on this website or email mlcsu.haveyoursay@nhs.net or call 01772 214244.
