Changes to gluten-free prescribing in England*
Following a national consultation, the Health Minister has made the decision that Bread and Flour Mixes* will continue to be available on prescription, to those living in England with a clinical diagnosis of coeliac disease or dermatitis herpetiformis. We are therefore pleased to inform you that all Juvela Loaves, Rolls and Flour Mixes will remain available on prescription**
After so much uncertainty about the future of gluten-free foods on prescription in England, we are pleased that the Minister has acknowledged how important it is to provide you with a foundation of dietary support so that you can successfully self-manage your condition.
*The change to gluten-free prescribing will only affect England. If you live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, we are pleased to confirm that your gluten-free prescription choices will not be affected.
**Please note that availability may vary depending on the local CCG prescribing policy in your area.
Thank you for choosing Juvela.
