Continuous Blood Glucose Monitoring Petition

This is a plea to all UK based readers to sign a parliament.uk petition calling for continuous blood glucose monitoring to be available on the NHS to all insulin dependent diabetics. Continuous blood glucose monitoring (CGM) is a system of sensors that constantly check blood glucose levels without the need for repeated finger prick testing. It's more accurate and less arduous (and painful) than finger prick testing and it's safer as it works 24 hours a day, but it isn't routinely available on the NHS, only to those who meet certain criteria. The petition is asking that it be available to all who need it.

Please take a few moments to consider lending the petition your name.

Many thanks, and a very Happy New Year to you all.
K.
