Corporate Documents and Policies
Members of NHS Boards, Clinical Commissioning Group governing bodies and NHS Managers are expected to meet core standards of conduct. The following documents have been developed to guide managers in the work they do and the decisions and choices they have to make and to reassure the public that these important decisions are being made against a background of professional standards and accountability.
Commissioning Statement for Flash Glucose Monitoring (Sept 18) The supply of the system and associated products will remain with hospital diabetes specialist teams only for the duration of this Policy. Supply will not be from GP practices. This allows the central collation of data during the trail periods with the system.
The West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership are currently working with diabetes specialists in West Yorkshire and Harrogate to update their policies on flash glucose monitoring, following the publication of new guidance from NHS England, and agree a single policy for all nine clinical commissioning groups in the area.
NHS England has recently published guidance entitled “Flash Glucose Monitoring: National Arrangements for Funding of Relevant Diabetes Patients.” The criteria outlined in the document are similar but not identical to the current policies in place across West Yorkshire and Harrogate.
The West Yorkshire and Harrogate Pharmacy Leadership Group is currently working with the diabetes specialists across West Yorkshire and Harrogate to produce a single policy in light of this national guidance.
Once this work has been completed, an amended policy will be published. Until this time, current CCG policies are still valid.
