Open letter to the Department of Health and Aged Care - Certification of continuous glucose monitoring initiative forms


Summary

Date: 22 July 2022

The RACGP has written to the Deputy Secretary of Health Resourcing in the Australian Department of Health and Aged Care, Ms Penny Shakespeare, regarding the exclusion of GPs from the authorised certifier group for the continuous glucose monitoring initiative forms.

The letter notes that people with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus are managed by a healthcare team which GPs are central to. As it stands, this decision creates unnecessary barriers to patient access to appropriate and timely care. This form should be managed within a model of current care including the coordinating GP.
