Re: Prescription Cuts (not just GF)

The fact that there appears to be no commitment by supermarket retailers to stock basic gf items should be brought to the attention of decision makers and to all those who may influence the decision makers.
The questions to be asked are simple.
if decisions re GF are made has the decision maker(s) taken into consideration the following:
+is their decision based solely on current perceived availability in supermarkets?
+what basic GF products, exactly, are available?
+have they assumed that supermarkets will always stock such products?
+given that it is understood that not one CCG and/or the NHS has secured any guarantee of supply from supermarkets, what happens to those with CD when basics may no longer be available on supermarket shelves?
