There are various ways you can make up your monthly unit allowance.
Here are just a couple of suggestions of how you may choose to do this, depending on how many units you are entitled to.
Examples of 14 units:
Examples of 8 units:
You can adjust these examples accordingly based on your monthly unit entitlement.
If you would like to include fresh loaves and/or rolls, this will be 8 units from your monthly entitlement as the fresh bread is supplied in cases of 8. For greater choice and flexibility, you can choose either a standard case (8 loaves/packs of rolls) or a mixed case (2×4 of any combination of fresh loaves/rolls). Read more…
If you prefer a selection of other products, you may prefer to choose a combination from the Bread and Flour Mix range available.
It is important to note that you can have as many different gluten-free products as you wish from the approved list (within your monthly entitlement); however, each one is a new line on your prescription and therefore, an individual prescription charge.
If you pay for prescriptions and are likely to use more than 3 units of gluten-free food per month, it is more cost effective to purchase a Prescription Prepayment Certificate (PPC). This will cover all your gluten-free food requirements, as well as any other medicines you may need.
The cost of an annual PPC is £104 (December 2018). To find out more about the PPC:
- Ask your pharmacist for a PPC form (FP95)
