e-petition – Blood Glucose Meter Accuracy Campaign
HM Government e-petition – Blood Glucose Meter Accuracy Campaign
Responsible department: Department of Health
Spirit Healthcare believes that people with diabetes deserve access to meters that have proven accuracy. Therefore they are proposing a requirement for annual UK testing to ensure continued compliance with international standards.
This test should be carried out by an independent body with the authority to withdraw non-compliant products from the market and should be funded by companies currently within the market to ensure no additional cost to the NHS.
