Diabetes Tech Can't Wait
Flash glucose monitoring, continuous glucose monitoring (CGM), insulin pumps and hybrid closed loops – diabetes tech is life-changing. But only if you have access. We’ve seen progress in recent years, but we need to go further, faster. Access to diabetes tech must be based on your need, not on your postcode.
Type in your postcode below to find out about access to tech in your area, how this compares to the rest of the country, and take action to make sure everyone is supported to get the tech they need to live well with diabetes.
In 2022, new guidelines in Scotland led to £14.6 million Scottish Government funding to increase access to hybrid closed loop technologies across Scotland, and new guidelines in England recommended giving more people living with diabetes access to flash and CGM. We need to make sure the guidelines in England and funding in Scotland are put into action, so no matter where you live, you can access tech that will help you take control of your diabetes and live a happier and healthier life.
Diabetes tech isn’t a luxury. For some, it’s vital. Together we will show decision-makers why everyone living with diabetes must have fair and equal access to the life-changing tech they’re eligible for.
