Prescription Changes – England

 13/11/2018

Gluten-free prescriptions in England are changing

Following a national consultation, the Health Minister has made the decision that Bread and Flour Mixes will continue to be supplied on prescription, to those living in England* with a medical diagnosis of coeliac disease or dermatitis herpetiformis.

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.

Juvela Bread & Flour Mixes still available

We are therefore pleased to advise you that Juvela’s range of Loaves, Rolls and Flour Mixes will all continue to be available on prescription.**

 

What to do now…

With these changes a anticipated to roll out over the coming weeks, we suggest that in the meantime:

✓ Continue with your existing arrangements to access your Juvela products until notified by your GP / CCG

✓ Then use this downloadable request form to select and calculate the Juvela products you can order on your gluten-free food prescription. Take this to your GP or pharmacist.
