Re: Different amounts cost of GF scrips

The reports referred to go back to 2014, 2015, and 2016. Lots of elements have changed since then, and some areas have reduced and/or removed gf foods permitted on prescription.
As for costs - it's the same the world over; there are price differentials for different brands of flours, pastas, breads, rolls, differing ingredients etc. etc. So, if the lowest cost brand is more widely prescribed then it follows that the total costs will be lower. Conversely, if the higher cost brands are more widely prescribed, then the total costs will be higher.
