January 2017 media round up

As Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) around the country continue to consult about gluten free prescribing there has once again been a number of articles published in the regional publications which include:


On 11 January the BMJ (Previously called the British Medical Journal) published a ‘head to head’ debate over gluten free prescribing in the NHS. Both sides agreed that patients should receive support from the NHS to access gluten free staple foods and the article explores the way that support is provided. Matthew Kurien, clinical lecturer in gastroenterology, Professor David Sanders, and Sarah Sleet Chief Executive of Coeliac UK presented the case for ensuring ongoing access to gluten free staple foods whilst on the other side Dr James Cave a GP argued that they shouldn’t continue in the current format.

The BMJ also accepted an article from a Coeliac UK member highlighting the financial difficulties she now faces following the cuts to her daughter’s gluten free prescriptions. Her article can be viewed online (log in required). Finally the BMJ interviewed the authors including the case study and the podcast audio debate can be listened to online.

The BMJ issued a press release about the debate which was followed up by a press statement from Coeliac UK which led to a number of articles in the media:

Following the formation of a new Gluten Free Industry Association (GIFA), the Food and Drink Federation issued a press statement which included a quote from Sarah Sleet, Chief Executive of Coeliac UK. It was well received by the industry and led to a number of online articles as well as coverage in hard copy publications:
