CLICK THE PIC below.

1. Talk to your GP about the decision.

Have your own personal needs been

considered, or is it a blanket restriction in

your area?

2. Ask for a Medicines Use Review. It's

free and offered by pharmacists to help

you get the best out of your medicines.

Talk about your problems with test

strips or meter and how this affects your

diabetes. The pharmacist will fill in an

action plan and a copy will be sent to your

GP. It should make clear the difficulties

you're facing with your meter, or in getting

enough test strips, and recommend an

increase in the amount you're prescribed.

3. If your local NHS has set the restriction,

ask to see a copy of the policy. Diabetes

STEPS TO SUCCESS

Some steps you can take if you face problems accessing strips

UK advises to not take for granted

that your surgery manager or GP are

following guidelines correctly. If you think

your surgery is being too rigid in their

understanding of the guidance, challenge

it. Put forward your interpretations and try

to reach an agreement with your GP or

healthcare team.

4. How to make your case for testing.

Explain how and why testing helps you to

look after your diabetes. Base it on the

type of diabetes you have, the treatment(s)

you use, and the particular problems you

are experiencing in accessing test strips.

Explain these points in full to stress the

benefit that testing is giving you, and the

impact any restriction is having on your

control or your feelings.
