The Gluten-free Food Service is a voluntary service for people that need to eat gluten-free foods as part of their care. This service is available through all of our pharmacies.

All gluten-free foods are provided free-of-charge as part of your prescription.

Who can use this service

You can use this service if you:

  • have a confirmed diagnosis of coeliac disease or dermatitis herpetiformis

  • live in Scotland

  • have registered with a GP practice

You can't use this service if you live in a care home but can continue to get your prescription through your GP.


By using this service you'll:

  • have more control and variety in your diet

  • have the freedom to change your order each month so that you can try different foods

  • be sure that your gluten-free food unit allocation is what you are entitled to

  • be offered an annual health check

As you'll order through your pharmacy, you'll no longer have to visit your GP each time you need a food prescription.
