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.
