How Do I Get Gluten-Free Food On Prescription?
In most parts of the country, as with prescriptions for medication, your GP raises and signs the prescription which is then dispensed by a pharmacist or dispensing doctor. You may find it useful to download and complete a personal prescription form with your choices before making an appointment with your GP or doctor.
