If you're invited to register for the Gluten-free Food Service, your GP or dietitian will:
- tell you how many gluten-free units are available to you
- give you a registration form to complete
You'll need to partially complete and sign this form before taking to the pharmacy you want to register with and collect your order from.
When you take the form to your pharmacy, the pharmacist will:
- explain how the service works and answer any questions
- give you a gluten-free food list and order form
They'll also tell you:
- how to access these for future orders
- if you're due an annual coeliac disease health check
Once regsitered, you must always go to the same pharmacy to order your gluten-free food.
If you wish to change the pharmacy you use for the Gluten-free Food Service, ask your GP practice to provide you with a registration form and you can take it to the new pharmacy you want to register with for the service.
If you're moving locally and can still use the same pharmacy, you'll need to tell the pharmacist your new address.
Moving further away
If you're moving further away and can't use the same pharmacy, you'll need to tell your GP or dietitian your new address so they can send you a new registration form.
Moving health board
If you're moving to a new health board and changing GP, you'll need to register with a new GP and pharmacist to start using the service again.
