Share post:

Medical devices and health care company Abbott said they are experiencing delays in fulfilling orders of the FreeStyle Libre sensors to some UK pharmacies.

In a statement, revealed by PSNC, Abbott advised that the delay is two to three weeks from the date of order.

“We are doing all we can to expedite shipments in an efforts to minimise any interruptions and are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause. Pharmacies will receive an e-mail with a tracking number when the product is dispatched,” the statement read.

In the case of unavailability of the sensors, PSNC suggested community pharmacy teams refer any affected patients back to their prescriber for consideration of alternative monitoring methods in the interim period.
