Gluten-Free Prescriptions

EDM number 2957 in 2010-12, proposed by Gordon Banks on 17/04/2012.
Categorised under the topics of Health services and Medicine.

That this House recognises that people with coeliac disease, for whom the only treatment is a strict gluten-free diet for life, must have access to gluten-free prescriptions to maintain their health as recommended by all healthcare professional guidelines; notes that without access to prescriptions, the most vulnerable people, those on low incomes, the elderly and those with mobility problems will suffer most as confirmed by independent research; and considers that the potential health risk to patients, including osteoporosis, infertility, and cancer of the small bowel, may cost the NHS more in the long run.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
