I have been self testing using a Coaguchek XS device for the last 5 years and test on average every 10 days. I also see an INR nurse at my GP practice every 6-8 weeks.
This has meant that I have been able to control my INR whilst travelling world wide for both work and pleasure as well as having several minor operations where I have had to come off Warfarin and self inject with Clexane.
This has worked well up until this week. I asked for a repeat prescription for the test strips and have been told that as the CCG has taken over from the PCT they will not provide the test strips on prescription. This appears to be because they are paying the GP surgery for my INR care.
Has anyone else come across this issue?
