Diabetes glucose monitors 'available to thousands more'
Wearable glucose monitors will be made available to tens of thousands more people with type 1 diabetes from April 2019, NHS England has announced.
Its decision comes after an investigation found patients in some areas of the country were being denied access to the device.
It reduces the need for finger-prick blood tests and helps people with diabetes to manage their condition.
Diabetes charities called the change of policy a huge step forward.
In England, around 300,000 people have type 1 diabetes.
