This kit has startup test strips, if you need to buy more there about £25 (for 50 uses) approx, if your an insulin dependent diabetic then your surgery MAY put this on prescription for you to get from your local pharmacy. Great product for helping people to control blood sugar level and there customer service is excellent.:thumbsup:

Should also mention that it does take some time to arrive, like most free stuff.

If you cannot wait, they are available in ASDA for £4.

That's a blood-y good find!

Sorry!?!

I just wish these offers would go out to diabetics only, or ask for a hospital number perhaps to cu=t down on the scum-buckets who bag a load of them to flog to genuine diabetics!

There were plans to charge people not on the national diabetes register so they may just charge people later.

Very ill-informed views. A hospital number is actually meaningless as there's no central database in the UK of patient notes and providing a mechanism of checking a patient's health status would be in gross breach of confidentiality.

It's not as if it's the NHS using tax payers' money to send these out. Roche is a huge pharmaceutical company which makes millions upon millions of pounds in profit every year from diabetic therapies alone! They're not doing this out of the goodness of their hearts! Once a patient has the meter (which costs very little to manufacture), they must use the strips to measure their blood glucose levels; many diabetics will be doing this twice a day. Roche and other pharmaceuticals make their money out of patients being supplied with these strips specific to their own meters, and it is either the patients who pay for these themselves or the NHS on prescription.

Accu-Chek Compact Plus

• It’s easy-to-use - Unique, integrated 17-strip drum means you never have to handle individual test strips.
• It’s fast - Three simple handling steps and a result in 5 seconds means an overall faster testing time – just test and go.
• It’s safe - No extra coding is necessary as the meter does it automatically. There’s even a special under-dose detection which indicates if you need to add more blood, so you don’t have to re-test or waste a test strip.
• It can keep up with you - The Accu-Chek Compact Plus system can also store results, remind you to test and has an adaptable hypo alarm.
• It’s handy - Unique built-in, detachable finger-*****er offers the choice of testing with just one hand.

Accu-Chek Aviva:

• User-friendly test strip - Wide, easy-fill and only needs tiny 0,6ul drop of blood
• Advanced, accurate system technology - 5 second test time
• Detects if insufficient blood has been applied
• Easy-open, flip-top strip vial
• Large 500-test memory
• Data management via infra-red (compatible with Accu-Chek software)
• Alternative Site Testing
• Free batteries
• Comes with innovative Multiclix finger *****er - no lancet handling, easy disposal in household waste

So it comes down to which you prefer:
Less handling of test strips or less handling of lancets?

I agree:

My local chemist has blood glucose meters for around £4.00 as the company’s make there money on the repeat prescriptions for the lancets & test strips

Can't see why it would breach confidence. If you need one you would expect that the applicant is erm... I know this is a radical idea, but... possibly diabetic:whistling: And if they're not diabetic it just shows them for the freeloading cadging wasters that they really are. Hospital number was merely a suggestion. I'm sure there must be other options... Iris recognition instead maybe!?!

I'm fully aware of that, as you'd have seen if you happened to see a similar post/thread a while ago. That thread had comments from people ordering them to "see what they're like".
I know Roches game.... A bit like Canon, HP and most other printer makers! Half of the time it's cheaper to lob your printer when the ink runs out and get another.
So with all due respect you're telling me nothing here. And I disagree when you say my views are "ill informed" as I'm sure there must be some form of diabetic register. Maybe hospital numbers aren't the ideal method, but something on that line would surely be acceptable.

Excellent, thanks very much, a type II diabetic and I was looking to change my meter.
#20
They've taken the website down.

They've taken the website down.


Nope, it looks like its still available from here.
#22
Is still working, thanks needed a upgrade from my old accu-chek active. It is looking a bit rough.
#23
I already own this meter and I noticed on the website that if you register your meter they'll send you there compass software for free

I rang up and they said "do I have the Accu-chek IR adapter?"
"No, How much?" Thinking here comes the bill
"Free"

I was totally blown away by this thinking the software was free, so they'd get you on the IR adapter but nope all free and the serial to USB adapater free too
They also offer(dunno if they still do) free batteries for life too.

Awesome, all you do is register the meter
#24
Thanks so much for finding this. I'm diabetic and so is me Dad so if ordered one for each of us. I've had my tester for 8 years so perhaps time for an upgrade...
#25
I work as a Medicines Manager in a Doctors Surgery - These free meters are fine as long as your GP/diabetic nurse are happy that you should be testing.

Some Care Trusts do not advice patients who are Type 2 DIABETIC DIET CONROLLED ONLY to test their bloods, therefore many surgery's will not provide test strips for patients if they are controlling their Diabetes by diet only.

so if you are diet only and wish to test your blood with one of these free meters, then you may find that you will have to buy your own test strips as your GP/Diabetic Nurse could refuse to put them on an NHS Prescription!

still a nice little freebie for those who really need it.
