Lancing devices and lancets (finger-prickers)

The lancing devices (or as most of us call them, ‘finger prickers’) listed here can be bought alone, not just as part of the blood testing kit. Try not to be dismissive of lancing devices – some of them really are good these days, with technology and basic manufacturing evolving so that we don’t need to reuse lancets (so pain is reduced) or replace lancets (another pain in its own way). Some even have lancets that retract, which means they can be easily and safely disposed. It’s about time!

    You recently sent me a free sample Accu-chek Multiclix finger pricker which I found excellent and much less painful. I should like to know where I can purchase additional lancet drums.

    Hi Sandra, you can get them on prescription from your GP. Ask your GP to order using these details: PIP code 317-1220 in the UK or in Ireland, GMS code 85504.
