FreeStyle Libre 2
From 1 August 2021, FreeStyle Libre 2 products will be available to access through the Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) Initiative as part of the NDSS.

Note: Existing users of FreeStyle Libre can continue to use FreeStyle Libre or choose to change to FreeStyle Libre 2—both products will be available.
No starter kit is required for FreeStyle Libre 2. However, people should consult their health professional about how to best use FreeStyle Libre 2 as part of their diabetes management.
The eligibility criteria to access continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and flash glucose monitoring (Flash GM) products through the CGM Initiative have not changed.
From 1 August 2021, updated Continuous and Flash Glucose Monitoring Access forms will be available on the NDSS website at ndss.com.au/forms#cgm.
There are no changes to the health professionals authorised to certify Continuous and Flash Glucose Monitoring Access Forms. Only health professionals listed on the Continuous and Flash Glucose Monitoring Access forms can certify access.
