Type 1 Diabetes (1718099)

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in its 2015 clinical guidelines covering the management of type 1 diabetes in adults (NG17[1]) and children (NG18[2]), recommended that continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is offered to people that meet specific situations. In line with the Freedom of Information Act (2000) we would like to understand the reimbursement routes for funding CGM systems in your CCG.   We would be grateful if you could respond to the following questions:

1.   How many people are living with type 1 diabetes in your CCG? (Total number)

At 31st March 2016, there were 10,854 people in Calderdale on a diabetes register. Diabetes UK estimates that 10% of all people with diabetes have Type 1 diabetes.

2.   How many type 1 diabetic patients in your CCG currently use CGM? (Total number)

The CCG does not hold this information.

3.   Does your CCG have a policy on the use and funding of CGM? (Yes/No)

No.

4.   How is CGM currently funded within your CCG? (e.g. routinely commissioned/ routinely commissioned within the scope of the NICE guidance/ Individual Funding Request/patient self-funded/ Hospital funded etc.)

Individual Funding Request.

5.   Does your CCG specify specific CGM systems? (Yes/No)

No.

6.   Does your CCG differentiate between CGM and flash glucose monitoring (FGM)? (Yes/No)

No.

7.   How many IFR applications were received between 1st April 2016 and 31st March 2017 for CGM? (Total number)

Due to the low number of individuals involved, we are unable to disclose this information as it relates to equal to or less than 5 individuals.   Releasing this information could potentially support re-identification of individuals and, as such, we are issuing an exemption notice under section 40 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.  Section 40 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 provides an absolute exemption where disclosure of personal data about someone other than the applicant would contravene any of the data protection principles. Consequently, the exemption is not subject to the public interest test
