of the NHS Long Term Plan, tens of

thousands of people are experiencing

first-hand the difference that cutting-edge

treatments on the NHS are making for

people living with Type 1 diabetes across

the country."

MP Jo Churchill, Parliamentary Under

Secretary of State for Prevention, Public

Health and Primary Care, added, "It is

fantastic that tens of thousands of patients

are already benefitting from the rollout of

the latest wearable health technology,

part of this government's commitment

to increase funding to support the NHS

Long Term Plan. We are putting the

power back in the hands of people with

Type 1 diabetes, so they can more easily

manage their condition. I look forward to

these numbers growing, as more people

are empowered to use this innovative

technology to improve their quality of life."

Going to plan

Now nearly 30,000 people across the

country with Type 1 diabetes have

received FreeStyle Libre monitors through

the NHS Long Term Plan, ahead of

schedule in delivering the NHS Long

Term Plan commitment to a minimum of

50,000 people who qualify to have the

device. The device is the size of a £2 coin

and worn on the arm, means people with

Type 1 do not have to carry out multiple

painful finger-prick checks to monitor

their blood sugar levels. Instead, they

can monitor their blood sugar levels more

conveniently by scanning the sensor,

in this way makes it easier for them to

manage their blood sugar levels. The

NHS is writing to local leaders to ensure

this rapid uptake continues, medical

directors are being urged to further build

on the successful rollout to ensure people

across the country reap the benefits of the

technology.

The NHS Long Term Plan also

commits to rolling out continuous glucose

monitors from April 2020 for every

pregnant woman with Type 1 diabetes,

in its latest step to harness the power

of digital technology. The plan also sets

out world leading action to help people

with Type 2 diabetes, including doubling

capacity of the Diabetes Prevention

Programme so 200,000 people a year

can benefit along with trialling new very

low-calorie diets.
