SUPERMARKET VOUCHERS FOR COELIACS AS ALTERNATIVE TO PRESCRIPTION (which is limited and costs government more!) 


Coeliacs are hit by high prices for gluten free products at the supermarket, often x3 the price compared to regular items. This can prove very difficult financially to budget it on low income.

Prescriptions cost the government more than this and is at the doctors discretion, also it is not convenient to have to order, for eg, 8 loafs of bread (as they come in that quantity pack) and that has used up your allocation.

Please can a system be introduced, that coeliacs (who cannot choose their diet) can be issued with vouchers to use at supermarkets, as it is unfair that people are struggling financially when it’s a medical need.

GLUTEN FREE IS NOT A LIFESTYLE CHOICE SO WHY SHOULD COELIACS HAVE TO PAY MORE FOR BREAD ETC, TO PROTECT THEIR HEALTH!
