slower R&D programmes.

So, we are where we are, and

we are in a far better place when it

comes to choice and access than ever

before. It's joyful news.

and additional commentary below.

Some reactions

Abbott provides a portfolio of

glucose sensing solutions with the

FreeStyle Libre system that includes

the only Flash Glucose Monitoring

systems (FreeStyle Libre and

FreeStyle Libre 2 systems), as well

as a real-time CGM (FreeStyle Libre

3 system). As the most widely used

sensor-based glucose monitoring

system in the world, the FreeStyle

Libre portfolio has so far changed

the lives of nearly 4m people in more

than 50 countries around the world.

Neil Harris, General Manager

of Abbott's Diabetes Care Business

in the UK and Ireland commented

on the NICE guidelines, saying,

"The updated NICE guidelines are

a significant advance, especially for

people with Type 2 diabetes who rely

on insulin, the majority of whom have

not had access to such technology on

the NHS until now. We welcome the

acknowledgement that Flash Glucose

Monitoring can empower more

informed health decisions, improving

outcomes and quality of life as a

result. Combined with the expansion

of CGM access for those with Type

1, the guidelines support choice to

allow the right product, based on

individual need, and bring us closer

to a future where finger-prick testing

is a thing of the past for all people

who use insulin."

On its website, the charity

Diabetes UK celebrated the

publication of new guidelines by

the National Institute of Health and

Care Excellence (NICE) recommend

wider access to Flash and continuous

glucose monitoring (CGM) for people

living with diabetes on the NHS.

These new guidelines represent a

shift towards a better understanding

of technology as an integral part of

diabetes management, rather than an

added luxury.

We have been campaigning for

better access to these technologies

for many years and has been actively

involved in responding to NICE's

consultation on this guideline update.

We're thrilled that our response to

their consultation and our wider

work pushing for better access

to Flash and CGM has been heard

- including via our more recent

Diabetes is Serious and Cheque for

Tech campaigns.

The new guidelines recommend

that:

• all adults with Type 1 diabetes

should have access to either Flash

or CGM

• all children with Type 1 diabetes

should have access to CGM and

that

• some people with Type 2 diabetes

who use insulin intensive therapy

(two or more injections a day)

should have access to Flash,

for example if they experience

recurrent or severe hypos, if they

have a disability that means they

cannot finger-prick test or if they

would otherwise be advised to test

8 or more times a day.

We are also pleased to see the

new guidelines recommending

that the health system addresses

the inequalities in Flash and CGM

access that already exist - something

we called for them to do in our

response to the consultation on

these guidelines.

Chris Askew OBE, chief executive

at Diabetes UK, hailed the news as,

"celebrating a clear step towards

ensuring many more people living

with all types of diabetes will have

access to the appropriate technology

that can help them live happier and

healthier lives."

The charity Juvenile Diabetes and

Research Foundation (JDRF), which

focuses on finding a cure for Type 1

diabetes, ran the headline Everyone

with Type 1 diabetes will be offered

flash or CGM technology free on the

NHS in England and Wales: new NICE

guidelines published. It said, "JDRF is

delighted that the National Institute

for Health and Care Excellence

(NICE) is recommending that glucose

monitoring devices can now be

chosen based first and foremost on a

person's preferences and needs and

how well the devices available will

Many sections of the diabetes care sector came together to get the

new NICE guidelines over the line, but the battle is not entirely over.
