Current status: Answered by Shona Robison on 14 March 2018
As the Member will be aware the Scottish Government has committed to £10m additional funding to increase, over the term of this Parliament, the provision of Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGMs) and Insulin Pump therapy for adults.
The first £2m additional funding was allocated to NHS Boards in financial year 2017-18.
NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and NHS Lanarkshire have exceeded the CGM delivery expectations set out in the Scottish Government's letter issued to all NHS Boards Directors on 12 June 2017.
Officials are currently consulting with NHS Boards with regard to the allocation of the £2m additional funding for 2018-19.
