Availability of blood glucose test strips

Diabetes UK Advocacy pack

We have produced this pack for people with diabetes who are concerned about the restriction of blood glucose test strips on prescription.

As well as containing information about how to challenge any test strip issues and some tools to help you advocate for yourself, it also signposts you to other useful organisations.

Useful downloads

Download our Blood Glucose Test Strip Advocacy pack (PDF, 405KB) to find out what you can do.

You may also find it useful to show present this Access to treatments letter from NHS England (PDF, 180KB) to your GP or local Clinical Commissioning Group when making your case for better access to test strips, Flash, CGM or pumps.
