February 2017 media round up

Prescriptions

With a number of CCGs launching consultations on gluten free prescribing as well as decisions being announced, a number of articles are being published both regionally and nationally. A few examples of recent coverage include:

Sarah Sleet, Chief Executive of Coeliac UK was interviewed by BBC Radio Leeds regarding gluten free prescribing in West Yorkshire and we are aware of a couple of other newspaper features on the topic that will be published shortly. As always we are extremely grateful to all the case studies who have agreed to speak to the media about the situation. If you are interested in becoming a case study please complete our case study form.

We are looking for a case study for a potential television interview for a national news channel about gluten free prescription cuts. The interview would be pre recorded and take place at your home. They are specifically looking to speak to someone diagnosed with coeliac disease who is now struggling financially following the introduction of the cuts and who is going without food or other essentials or getting into debt in order to purchase gluten free products in supermarkets. So if you are finding it difficult to manage and would be interested in sharing your story, please contact casestudies@coeliac.org.uk with your daytime contact details and a brief outline of your situation and someone from Coeliac UK will call you to discuss further. And if we can be of any support or help to anyone who is in this situation, please get in touch at campaigns@coeliac.org.uk.
