NHS Provision of Gluten Free Food in the Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Area.

The Vale of York CCG have given careful consideration to the feedback from the local consultation and the subsequent recommendations from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) review following their national consultation on gluten free foods.

Consequently, the decision has been made by the Vale of York CCG to adopt the position recommended by the DHSC and to provide gluten free bread and mixes on prescription for all patients with a confirmed diagnoses of Coeliac Disease.

Gluten Free Flour will be removed from the national drug tariff and this will mean that it will no longer be able to be prescribed.

The CCG has requested that patients are reminded that “This is our NHS, so let’s take care of it together” and to think about what Gluten Free products are ordered, to only make requests for what you need and to only rely on the NHS supply if absolutely necessary.

There is currently a measles outbreak in the Leeds area. Measles is one of the most highly infectious communicable diseases.

You need two doses of MMR one month apart to be fully protected against measles, mumps and rubella. If you and unsure whether you have been vaccinated, please contact the surgery to check.
