Abbott have advised that the temporary supply problems with FreeStyle Libre sensors have been resolved. Abbott has issued the following statement on 19th February 2020.

Abbott is sorry for the temporary delays in fulfilling FreeStyle Libre sensor orders and the impact this has had on the users as well as the wider diabetes community. The interruption in fulfilling orders was longer than anticipated and since then we have been working hard to rectify the situation. The delays have now been resolved.

FreeStyle Libre sensors are listed as an Appliance in Part IXA of the Drug Tariff which can be dispensed against NHS prescriptions. The sensors can only be ordered directly from Abbott through their pharmacy ordering portal.
