Re: Decision to remove GF food on prescription by North, East & West Devon CCG

However , Francis:
..The CCG have confirmed that GPs can use their clinical discretion to prescribe outside of these guidelines.....
Sounds to me as if the CCG has given GPs the green light to decide if their individual patient should have any particular prescription item despite the CCG advice.
BTW Didn't know GPs bear the cost of prescription items they prescribe then have the cost of them reimbursed- is that the situation?
