Response:

1.      How many coeliacs in your trust currently receive free gluten-free products on prescription? The only Gluten free item we order is Glutafin Gluten & Wheat-Free Digestive Biscuits (150g). The total spend in the past 12 months is £25.56. I am unable to tell how many Coeliacs have been prescribed this product as they are all issued as stock to Mobile Endoscopy Unit.
