Great News for coeliacs! There has been announcements this year from Primary Care Trusts (PCT’s) that they are putting Gluten Free Fresh Bread back on prescription formularies. This means you can get Fresh Bread on your gluten free prescription again.

This month West Sussex PCT has announced they have added fresh bread back on prescription for coeliacs in their area.

There are now many PCT’s that have added gluten free fresh bread back on.  A key product for coeliacs who need to ensure they are getting the right nutrients, including calcium and folic acid. Since November 2012 I have heard of the following PCT’s adding fresh bread back on prescription. Here is the list of PCT’s:

West Suffolk

Eastern Costal Kent


East Sussex Downs and Weald

Hastings and Rother
