Luton CCG decision on gluten free prescribing
19 June 2018
We are pleased to let you know that Luton CCG has decided to adopt the guidance from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC). Therefore, gluten free bread and flour mixes will continue to be available on prescription in the Luton area.
We are reassured that Luton CCG has listened to the concerns put forward by Coeliac UK, people with coeliac disease and healthcare professionals. The decision recognises the important role of gluten free staples in managing a gluten free diet and the need for support due to the high cost and variable availability of these foods.
We are continuing to campaign to protect access to gluten free food on prescription across the UK and will keep you updated in Crossed Grain magazine, our monthly newsletter and on our website.
