It sounds like the same person who rang me but I only got the one call, unless I ignored further calls, I can't remember now though do te d to ignore calls fro numbers I don't recognise.I was a member for several years, paying a yearly subscription of £25, but then started getting phone calls (always from someone with a really posh voice!!!) asking for extra donations. These calls were every couple of days and became very irritating and almost to the point of harrassment? I therefore cancelled and wouldn't reconsider becoming a member again.
Yes, a shame really as the charity has lost out on my £25 but self inflicted I am afraid.It sounds like the same person who rang me but I only got the one call, unless I ignored further calls, I can't remember now though do te d to ignore calls fro numbers I don't recognise.
Not in England! And not with type 2.I’m just grateful I have been offered one! I get my Libra Sensor on the NHS doesn’t everyone?
I’m trying to get mine prescribed. It’s been ongoing since last November so far, I keep jumping through more and more hoops. Meanwhile I keep on self funding, because they really are game-changing.I’m just grateful I have been offered one! I get my Libra Sensor on the NHS doesn’t everyone?
I think the aim was for something like 25% of people with Type 1 to have Libre following the campaigning from Diabetes UK and JDRF.
That’s Ok if you’re being seen by the hopsital in the first place, I had to be re-referred, which meant harassing my GP surgery nurse, then my GP, for a couple of months, then wait for a hospital appointment, which then changed to a delayed telephone consultation because of lockdown. I also put myself ahead of the game by doing the online Bertie course (they normally insist on a Dafne, at our hopsital, but they said a Bertie would probably do, in the circumstances, but I may have to produce the certificate to them to prove I completed it) and persuading them that since I’ve been using it, I don’t need the initiation course that they usually insist on (and probably aren’t running because of Covid)@Robin I found being a pain in the _ _ _ _ worked, I was told a ‘certain number’ were considered for a Libre each month so I rang each month to see if I was on that list. It took 4 months of calls, I think my persistence helped either they wanted to get me off their backs or they appreciated my eagerness (probably the former) Yes they are a game changer
