Ketone testing reccomendations

This guidance, developed by the London Diabetes Clinical Network and NHS London Procurement Partnership, provides advice for prescribers in primary care on ketone strips for people with type 1 diabetes across London.

NHS London Procurement Partnership and the NHSE London Diabetes Clinical Networks have now published “Ketone testing in people with adults and children type 1 diabetes: advice for prescribers in primary care”. This can be found at the link below:

Final arrangements must be locally determined at CCG / provider level to ensure future pathways are clear and communication is effective.
