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.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
