Integrated care systems (ICSs) are partnerships made of National Health Service organisations, local councils and others to take collective responsibility for managing resources, delivering NHS standards, and improving the health of the population they serve. Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) are central partners in ICSs. CCGs will continue to be responsible for making commissioning decisions in an ICS. We expect that, working with their partners in an ICS, CCGs will continue to support people with diabetes to access their preferred glucose monitoring device in line with best practice clinical guidance.
