Written answers (Question to Health)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 156, 185, 186, 187, 194 and 195 together.

I have not received a funding proposal from the HSE in relation to the FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitoring system. I understand that the review process in relation to this product is not yet completed.

I have asked the HSE to reply directly to the Deputies regarding the current stage of the review process.
