The Pan Mersey Area Prescribing Committee recommends the prescribing on the NHS of flash glucose monitor sensors (FreeStyle Libre®) only within the criteria outlined.

These templates should be used by Pan Mersey organisations for incorporation into their specialist diabetes service clinic documentation that informs primary care prescriber that Freestyle Libre prescribing has been initiated in an individual patient according to the agreed criteria in the Pan Mersey statement, when confirming to primary care prescriber whether the patient has met continuation criteria after review, and into patient information/ contract documentation given to each patient on commencement of prescribing. There is also a template for use by a specialist when informing primary care prescribers that an individual has been switched to Freestyle Libre 2.

Background information is provided to support primary care prescribers in switching existing Freestyle Libre users to Freestyle Libre 2.
