    Nope, Abbott sent 2 libre 2’s instead of 1’s by mistake then said to send them back & they would send 1’s out, 10 miles round trip to a post office so asked if I could keep them, don’t know if I dare ring again & ask for a reader

    Why not send back if you prefer Libre 1 but I find 2 more accurate especially when initially started.

    Lucky you....some of us can't get any, and end up having to self-fund.........GP's are only supposed to prescribe what you need of ANY prescribed item in small amounts, to cut back on expense and waste within the NHS.....
