Meds Management response:
Dear Mr Cahm
Thank you for your letter. I can confirm that from 1st April 2019 Hastings and Rother CCG shall be commissioning FreeStyle Libre in line with the NHS England guidelines published on 7th March.
Unfortunately I am unable to provide a more detailed update at present as we are currently working with our specialist diabetes service to develop the process. However, I can advise that the specialist diabetes team will be identifying suitable patients for a trial of FreeStyle Libre and will write to their GP asking them to prescribe the sensors for the duration of the trial period.
FreeStyle Libre will therefore have orange status on the East Sussex Formulary (for specialist initiation only).
I hope this provides you with sufficient assurance that this matter is in hand.
