We are very disappointed to tell you that the CCG has made the decision to remove access to gluten free food on prescription from 1 May.
If you are concerned that this policy change will impact on your ability to manage your gluten free diet and your coeliac disease, you should see your GP for advice as the final decision about what to prescribe lies with your GP.
Have your say
