Event description

Description

Welcome to NHS Fife's Freestyle Libre educational session booking system. Freestyle Libre is a flash glucose monitoring system which NHS Fife has agreed to support for patients with Type 1 diabetes who inject at least 4 times a day. To receive your Freestyle Libre system on prescription you MUST attend an education session (*each session lasts 1 hour) and prior to this you MUST do the following:

1. Complete the Freestyle Academy of 9 modules and bring proof of completion with you OR YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND THE SESSION AND THEREFORE COLLECT A PRESCRIPTION. This is a safety requirement. Here is the link https://freestylediabetes.co.uk/freestyle-progress.

2. It is also a requirement that you create an account with 'Libreview' via http://www.libreview.com. LibreView is a secure, cloud-based diabetes management system that gives healthcare professionals and patients clear, easy-to-understand reports from many popular glucose monitoring devices.

3. Please now book onto this Eventbrite educational session.

Please note if you have Type 1 diabetes and have not attended the diabetes centre for more than 18 months, and wish to discuss Libre further, please arrange a diabetes specialist nurse appointment on 01592 648001.

Please note if you have previously attended an educational session and/or have self-funded Freestyle Libre you are still required to attend this session and complete the Freestyle Academy modules in order to receive sensors on prescription.
