Gluten Free Foods on Prescription

If you are diagnosed with Coeliac Disease you can receive a quantity of gluten free foods on prescription to help with your diet. Foods include bread, flour, pasta and pizza bases for example. The NHS will allow a number of units to be prescribed dependending on your age and sex (see table below).

The Advisory Committee on Borderline Substances (ACBS) dictates what can be available on prescription and most doctors follow these guidelines. Doctors are allowed to prescribe other gluten free foods if they feel it is necessary for your welfare.

How often can I get food?

The units are based on a monthly order and some foods may be worth more than one unit.

Prescription Charges

Prescription charges apply in the normal way.If you are entitled to free prescriptions, you will receive your gluten free prescription charge free too!

A balanced diet

It is important to chose your gluten free prescription units carefully and think about ordering a balanced diet.

The choice of foods may change over time and a new prescription will need to be generated everytime you want to make a different choice, which may be fairly regularly until you know what foods you like and dislike.

Primary Care Trusts across the country may offer different foods and products, so it is worth getting a list from your local PCT before ordering.
