Be registered with a GP practice
Not live in a care-home. Patients in care-homes will continue to access gluten-free foods through their GP

How to Register

You and your GP must complete a Patient Registration Form which must then be taken to your pharmacy. Your pharmacist will explain how to use the service and how many units you are entitled to order each month.

How to place an order

To place an order, you will choose products from  the Gluten-Free Food list up to your maximum amount and complete a Gluten Free Order form and take this to your pharmacist. You can access both these documents from the home page of this website and the pharmacy is happy to accept email orders.
