“Gluten Free products on prescription”

NHS Northamptonshire CCG has taken the decision not to continue to provide gluten free bread or mixes to patients diagnosed with coeliac disease since these products are now available via supermarkets, community pharmacy or Coeliac UK.

You may find Coeliac UK website https://www.coeliac.org.uk/home/  helpful as it contains lots of useful information about coeliac disease including information on gluten free food safety and a gluten free diet on a budget.

We have been advised any patients with concerns should contact the CCG Patient Experience team by emailing nccg.patientexperience@nhs.net or calling 01604 651102.
