Once approved eligible participants can order allocated transmitter and sensors through community pharmacy acting as NDSS access points. Once ordered, sensors or transmitters will be available for collection at pharmacies/access points within 24-48 hours in most circumstances.
- Eligible participants change their pharmacy/access point. Any sensors or transmitted pre-ordered by the pharmacy and not collected will reduce the total number available to eligible participants if they decide to change pharmacy/access point.
- Eligible participants are on holiday and want to access sensors and transmitters from another pharmacy/access point. This can impact eligible participant available allocations as they reach the end of the calendar year, a common holiday period.
- Eligible participants change Pharmacy/Access point.
- Eligible participants in consultation with their healthcare professional change device.
Eligible participants are also allocated a defined number of sensors under the NDSS funding each year. The same access issues arise as described above when pharmacies/access points pre-order sensors on behalf of eligible participants.
There is no expectation for pharmacies to keep these NDSS products in stock as there is with blood glucose monitoring strips and needles for use with injectable medicine.
