Changes to gluten free products available on prescription
These changes are happening because there is now a large range of gluten-free products available in supermarkets and online, which there weren't before. Over the past few years these products have reduced in price.
If you have been diagnosed with Coeliac Disease and /or dermatitis herpetiformis, you will now be restricted to 8 units of bread and flour only per month. THIS APPLIES TO ALL AGES AND GENDERS
You will need to continue with the same ordering process. To order please collect a NEW form from either reception, the pharmacy orHERE

Ordering of Infant Formula on prescription
We have been asked by West Leicestershire CCG to raise awareness of the costs of infant formulas prescribed for cow’s milk protein allergy as the average cost of these specialist formulae are much greater than standard formulae. For example one tin (400g) of specialist infant formula can cost approximately £30.
We would like to reassure you that we will continue to prescribe these for your child but are asking you to take extra care when ordering on prescription.
