Gluten free food prescriptions
Gluten free foods may only be prescribed for patients who have a diagnosed “established gluten enteropathy” such as coeliac disease or dermatitis herpetiformis. Following a consultation in January 2018, the Department of Health and Social Care recommends restricting prescribing of certain gluten free foods on prescription. To reflect this new recommendation, NHS Buckinghamshire Clinical Commissioning Group recommends that 1. the prescribing of gluten free bread and bread mixes only for eligible patients and 2. pasta and flour should no longer be prescribed. The maximum quantity of 8 units of gluten free food per patient, per month has not changed.

Some people order these repeat prescriptions themselves. Others choose to use a pharmacy or dispensing company to order medicines on their behalf. Depending on how you request your medicines, the way that is works for you may change from 1 August 2018. You can find further information here
