Please note from the 1st of Sept 2017 all gluten free food products previously available on prescription will no longer be issued by your GP. This has been a decision taken by the CCG. The following was stated by Dr Bob Bowes from the West Kent CCG:
At our Governing Body meeting on 25 July, NHS West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) decided that, from 1 September 2017, gluten-free food will no longer be routinely prescribed for people with coeliac disease and other gluten-sensitive illnesses in West Kent.
NHS funding will continue for gluten-free products for people with Phenylketonuria (PKU) who need specific low protein food.
What this means for you is that, from 1 September, your GP will no longer be able to prescribe gluten-free food.
