Have your say (3 Clinical Policies) - May 2018

Lancashire-wide review and harmonisation of clinical policies

Have your say

As part of the ongoing review of clinical policies for all the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Lancashire and South Cumbria, we are now seeking views and comments on three new or revised policies.

The latest draft clinical policies open for patient and public feedback are as follows:

  • new policy for the supply and funding of insulin pumps for patients with Diabetes Mellitus
  • a new policy for the provision of continuous glucose monitoring and flash glucose monitoring for patients with Diabetes Mellitus
  • policy for the management of back pain – spinal injections and radiofrequency denervation

The draft policies can be found below.  You are invited and recommended to read the clinical policies before giving your feedback. You can click on the link next to each policy to complete a short survey and give your views.

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions that may answer any queries you have about the process or about these policies. To help you we have also included a Level of Change document that identifies what has been changed in the updated policy for back pain – spinal injections.  As the policies on insulin pumps and glucose monitoring are new policies there is no comparison required with previous policies.

Your comments will be fed back to the CCG as part of the development process.

Comments on these policies should be submitted by Friday 29 June.

If you would prefer to have a hard-copy of the policy and/or of the survey questionnaire, you can download and print them: (Insulin pumps hard copy, continuous glucose monitoring hard copy & back pain hard copy) or please contact the CCG using the contact page on this website or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 01772 214244 if you would like a paper copy to be sent to you directly.
