Gluten Free Food Service
This week sees the introduction of the Scottish Gluten Free Foods Service with the pilot itself starting in fully in April 2014. Can contractors please ensure they and their staff are knowledgeable about the service and can direct patients through the process of registration and monthly ordering using the documents provided to inform that process. More information regarding the service specification and remuneration are available from NHS Circular PCA(P)(2013)29 and PCA(P)(2015)24.
We have included a patient guidance document, patient leaflet and sample order forms that you can provide to the patient to keep them informed. More information can be found on the NHS inform website and Coeliac UK websites.
