Food from the pharmacy

Once you have a medical diagnosis of coeliac disease from your doctor you are entitled to receive a reasonable quantity of essential gluten free foods on prescription, available from your pharmacy.

These foods provide alternatives to everyday staple foods including bread and rolls, breakfast cereals, flour mixes, pasta, pizza bases and crackers, which are essential to maintaining a healthy, balanced gluten free diet.*

*The type and quantity of gluten-free foods allowed on prescription will depend on the NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) area you live in.

Step 1. Find out what types of food are available?
