This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

For those Type 1 Diabetics who currently cannot get the Freestyle Libre on prescription (or type two who are interested) - you can pick the sensors up at ASDA pharmacy for £44 exclusive of VAT. Diabetics are not required to pay VAT on diabetic related medical supplies under HMRC rules.

Thought it would be of interest as they are not available via the supplier directly anymore, and they are £60-£80 elsewhere.

These are life changing for Diabetics, just a shame not everyone can get them on prescription. Superdrug Pharmacys also sell them at this price, they used to be cheaper at £35 but put their prices up a while back. Heat added.
£49.95 at Superdrug if that’s easier for anyone to get to.
You will still have to finger prick test with conventional meters ie if you meeting DVLA guidance for driving or if you feel/think hypo coming on + want to confirm - the libre measures blood glucose from interstitial fluid NOT a venous sample.
I can recommend getting one of these to go with the libre https://miaomiao.cool

The libre really should be available on prescription, it's cheaper than blood pick testing ( saving the NHS money) and way more convenient.

Correct and the reading is approx 10 - 15 minutes behind. As mentioned these are not a replacement for blood tests, but are very useful for a quick check and a record of what your glucose levels are doing (like during the night). They are not perfect and some people don't get on with them. I suffer from the Libre "rash/burn" that affects a lot of people (a reaction to the filament/adhesive) but the usefullnes out weighs the rash/burn I get.

Yes, this literally saved my life. I went into diabetic coma a few years ago (first and only time) and so my wife decided to get this direct with abbott. I wasn't happy due to price but it has since saved my life a few times. Since I'm a very active T1 my bloods can go very low very quickly. I thank my wife and this sensor for still being on this planet.

Fortunately, its now free on NHS in Edinburgh after having done a class so anyone that can get this in NHS, I plead you do the 1 hour class and use this. It can certainly be a lifesaver.
For people with type 1 diabetes, these are going to be on prescription from 1st April 2019 here's the URL
