Blood Glucose Monitoring – NEW

Clinical Guidelines & Pathways


Blood Glucose Monitoring

Interim position on Blood Glucose Monitoring agreed at the Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes Area Prescribing Committee, May 2022

BLMK APC supports the implementation of the NICE Guidelines relating to blood glucose monitoring in the treatment of diabetes accepting that the speed of implementation may be affected by information still awaited (real time Continuous Glucose Monitoring costs {rtCGM} and new products coming to market) and affordability across the Integrated Care System (ICS).

No change in practice is currently recommended pending ongoing discussions with specialist teams, clarification of CGM costs/information on new products and clarification of the BLMK ICS funding position.
