<name removed>, our Chief Pharmacist has confirmed that West Essex Clinical Commissioning Group are adopting the national guidance.
She has explained that the first month (one sensor together with the scanner) will be provided by a patient’s specialist clinic. Following this, up to a maximum of five further monthly prescriptions for two sensors will be issued by a patients GP. Continuation after six months will be at the discretion of the patient’s specialist. The GP will need to have confirmation from the Specialist before they are able to continue to prescribe.
