Gluten Free Prescribing Update

Following a national consultation by the Department of Health & Social Care (DHSC), the availability of gluten free foods on prescription in primary care in England has changed.

An amendment to the Prescribing Regulations came into force on the 4th December 2018 and from this date only bread products and mixes will be available on prescription in England. All other gluten free foods will no longer be prescribed and will be blacklisted within the amended Regulation.  This Regulation will only apply to prescriptions issued to patients in England.

From December 2018 the English Drug Tariff will include a new updated ACBS ‘Borderline Substances List’ of gluten-free products.

From December 2018 the Scottish Drug Tariff will include an updated list of Gluten Free Food items available from the Scottish Gluten Free Food Service. 

How will these changes affect Juvela products?

Juvela can confirm that all the Juvela Gluten Free (Flour) Mixes (white, fibre and harvest) and Bread products including fresh, long-life and part-baked loaves and rolls (white and fibre) have all been reviewed and approved by the Advisory Committee on Borderline Substances (ACBS) and will remain available on prescription in all areas of the UK for patients with clinically diagnosed coeliac disease and dermatitis herpitiformis. Availability may vary in England depending on local CCG policy.

Juvela Gluten-Free Starter Pack Service

With dietary adherence fundamental to the long-term management of coeliac disease, a gluten-free prescription for staple gluten-free foods helps provide patients with a foundation of nutritional support from which they can successfully self-manage their life-long condition.

A starter pack offers newly diagnosed coeliac patients the opportunity to try a comprehensive range of staple gluten-free foods before setting up a prescription.

A starter pack will help your patients make the right food choices to suit their dietary habits, making the transition onto a gluten-free diet smoother and ensuring that they are more likely to stick to their diet.  Using a starter pack also helps reduce waste, encouraging patients to only order products that they have tried and tested.

To request starter pack request cards for your patients, please email info@juvela.co.uk or call us at 0800 783 1992
