Hi I've been diabetic for 31 years and recently moved house so my diabetic care has moved to Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge. I was hoping they'd be a bit more flexible than my hospital in London regarding diabetes kit. You need to do at least 8 finger pricks a day to get a Freestyle Libre on the NHS. My average was 7.5 so I need to do 8 tests a day for 3 months to get one. I asked about Dexcom G6 and pumps but there's absolutely no way I'll get them. When I read this forum a lot of people seem to have this kit. My question (finally!) is how easy has it been for others to get kit on the NHS? My control isn't too bad but as time goes on I'm more at risk of complications and I'm sure better control with the help of some kit would help fend them off. It's SO frustrating. The UK has the lowest pump usage in Europe. That's it. Rant over . Other people's experiences would be very interesting.
