Surely a breadcrumb wouldn’t hurt someone with coeliac disease?

Even very small amounts of gluten can be damaging to people with coeliac disease. Therefore, taking sensible steps to avoid cross contamination with gluten is important.

Do the new rules apply to deli counters in supermarkets?

Yes. Food businesses selling foods that are loose, i.e. not wrapped, must provide allergen information. This applies to deli counters and other environments like butchers, fishmongers and salad bars.

Does coeliac disease only affect Europeans?

Coeliac disease affects all ethnic groups and is common in Europe and North America, as well as in southern Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and South America.

Is there any advice for people with coeliac disease who are pregnant?

Pregnancy holds no greater risks for women diagnosed with coeliac disease than those without, but it is important you follow a strict gluten-free diet and make sure you get a good intake of calcium and iron.

Are there any incentives for pharmacists taking part in the Community pharmacy supply of gluten-free foods scheme?

Introducing a pharmacy led supply scheme allows better stock control of gluten-free foods for pharmacists as well as providing a more flexible service to improve the patient experience.

Pharmacists and GP dispensaries are paid a service charge at six monthly intervals for each patient who accesses the service. When the scheme in Northamptonshire was introduced it was run as an Enhanced Service with funding for this element of the contract coming from Primary Care Contracting budgets.
