Seeks views on proposals on whether to make changes to the availability of gluten-free foods that are prescribed on the NHS.
This consultation ran from9:30am on 31 March 2017 to
midday on 22 June 2017
Gluten-free (GF) foods are available on prescription to patients diagnosed with gluten sensitivity, and have been since the late 1960s when their availability was extremely limited.
A wide range of GF foods is now readily available in supermarkets and other food outlets, meaning that the ability of patients to obtain these foods without a prescription has greatly increased.
Our consultation proposes options for restricting the availability of GF products on NHS prescription. We would value your views to help inform our work.
