Prescription restrictions: Coeliac UK's position

On their website CUK state their position as regards the growing number of cuts in foods that coeliacs can access on prescription (see below) and then offer useful advice as to how they feel it is best to proceed.

'Coeliac UK believes that prescribing of gluten-free staple foods is an essential NHS service that should be available to all patients. We feel that gluten-free food on prescription should stay within the NHS and are working hard to ensure that the view and needs of people with coeliac disease is represented.

We support choice in the prescribing of gluten-free staple foods and ask PCTs to allow doctors and dietitians to use their clinical judgement when prescribing foods for an individual. Everyone's lifestyle and preferences are different and this makes a "one size fits all" policy difficult.'
