Glucotide Strips to be blacklisted

Glucotide test strips, manufactured by Bayer, will be blacklisted in the Drug Tariff from January 2006.

Prescribing of these blood glucose reagent strips has been declining for several years as newer strips and devices come to market. Patients with diabetes are required to purchase their own blood glucose testing machines. The National Health Service provides testing strips.

Action: Clinicians will need to ensure that any patients currently being prescribing Glucotide strips are identified and offered a suitable alternative, however they may need to purchase a new device.
