No (to gluten free voucher scheme)
Posted by Lily P on 10/7/2017, 18:07:39, in reply to "Gluten free voucher scheme"
As my area presently has no GF scrip cuts (apart from obvious luxury items) I can have flour mix, rolls, bread & pizza bases through my nearby village pharmacy - which is in CUK scheme.
Pharmacy accepts GF repeats by phone and will, if needed, deliver the items to my door, too.
So, no, I would not want a voucher scheme.
If the GF prescriptions were to be cut in my area I do not know how I would manage.
I live in a rural location with unreliable bus service, no car, no nearby (or far) supermarket stocking my scrip GF items.
I guess I could order on line & have the GF prescription items delivered but that would be very expensive.
Would vouchers cover that?
