BMJ Open on prescribing of gluten free foods

From CUK 17 April 2018
The BMJ Open has published a paper which adds to the evidence that people with coeliac disease in England are currently facing a postcode lottery for access to gluten free food on prescription.
Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) are implementing policies at a local level which are impacting on whether or not patients can access gluten free food on prescription. This paper provides further evidence that this variation is due to CCG policies and not due to differences in clinical need.
