Written answers (Question to Health)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 910 to 912, inclusive, together.

I have not received a funding proposal or a recommendation 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.

As the review process is a service matter, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond to the Deputy directly.

Question No. 911 answered with Question No. 910.
Question No. 912 answered with Question No. 910.
