Folder Gluten Free
Following NHSE guidance published March 2018, NHS Herefordshire CCG (HCCG) ran a public engagement campaign with staff and the public to gauge opinion on how people would feel about removal of Gluten Free (GF) foods from prescription. Outcomes showed the public were overwhelmingly in support and recognised the NHS needs to prioritise by making difficult choices. 62% of respondents agreed with their removal from prescription.
From 1st October 2018 GF foods are no longer recommended for routine prescribing under the HCCG Treatment Policy
