Gluten-free foods on prescription

A new consultation which follows on from the March 2017 consultation, 'Availability of gluten-free (GF) foods on prescription' has been launched. 

The Department of Health & Social Care (DHSC) is now consulting on the draft regulations which will allow bread and mixes to be the only GF products to be prescribed at NHS expense. GF products that fall outside the category of a bread or a mix will no longer be prescribed at NHS expense.

The consultation closes on 1st October.
