Re: Prescription Cuts (not just GF)

Consultations are still taking place. Whilst such consultations ask questions from those with or connected with CD, I believe that questions also need to be asked by those with CD. In particular the NHS and CCGs should be asked to perhaps consider the real need for firm, long-term, undertakings/commitments from the supermarkets they, the CCGs, appear to clearly support. If CCGs are suggesting that supermarkets will fill the gap of pharmacies for gf basics, then perhaps the CCGs need to seek firm undertakings from supermarkets to stock gf basics in most of their stores for those with CD.
At the present time, I believe that no supermarket chain has given any guarantee that, regardless of the size of any future gf market, they will always continue to stock gf basics in most stores.
