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 complete and sign this form. You should then take it to the pharmacy you want to register with and where you will collect your orders from.
When you take the form to your pharmacy, the pharmacist will:
- explain how the service works
- answer any questions
- give you a gluten-free food request form
They'll also tell you:
- how to access these forms for future orders
- if you're due an annual coeliac disease health check
Once registered, 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 or dietician to provide you with a registration form. You can then take this to the new pharmacy you want to register with.
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 your new address. This means that 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.
