The Caldicott Guardian zcts as the 'conscience' of an organisation and is primarily concerned with the protection of patient and service user information by actively supporting and enabling information sharing where it is appropriate i.e. ensuring it is shared only with those who have a justified need for it; and only shared through appropriately safeguarded routes.
Flash Glucose Monitoring – update March 2019
We are currently working with diabetes specialists in West Yorkshire and Harrogate to update our policies on flash glucose monitoring, following the publication of new guidance from NHS England, and agree a single policy for all nine clinical commissioning groups.
NHS England has recently published guidance entitled “Flash Glucose Monitoring: National Arrangements for Funding of Relevant Diabetes Patients.” The criteria outlined in the document are similar but not identical to the current policies in place across West Yorkshire and Harrogate.
The West Yorkshire and Harrogate Pharmacy Leadership Group is currently working with the diabetes specialists across West Yorkshire and Harrogate to produce a single policy in light of this national guidance.
Once this work has been completed, an amended policy will be published. Until this time, current policies are still valid.
