Prescription Advice

If you are diagnosed with coeliac disease by a doctor, you’re entitled to receive a range of gluten free foods on prescription. This includes everything from bread, rolls, cereals and crackers, to pasta, flour mixes and pizza bases.

These prescription products are available from your GP, or in some areas, via Pharmacists. It’s important you don’t exclude dietary staples such as bread and cereals as these are important sources of fibre, vitamins and minerals.
