Gluten Free Product Consultation

Gluten free foods can be prescribed to patients with established gluten sensitive enteropathies and have been available on prescription since the late 1960s when the availability of gluten free foods in shops was limited. It is now possible for patients to purchase GF foods from a range of suppliers and they now have a wide choice of alternative GF products to choose from to vary their diet. Patients can exclude gluten from their diet without purchasing special foods by eating foods such as meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, rice and most dairy products.

 

Research has found that many Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) have already introduced local formularies that restrict the types, or units, of GF foods that can be prescribed. Many have restricted GF foods to bread and flour only, or bread, flour and pasta. A number of CCGs have completely ended the prescribing of GF foods to their patients.

 

Dorset CCG want to ensure that any possible changes they make to the listing of GF foods are carefully considered and they would welcome your views as part of the formal consultation process. The consultation closes on Friday 9th June 2017.
