Yesterday we received the following email:
I am a coeliac, have been for 31 years. When I was diagnosed the bread was tinned and things have progressed a lot since then.
My friend recently became coeliac, and gets a prescription from the same doctors’ surgery as I do, but she is given Warburtons brown loaves. I have tried Warburtons brown bread and it is the nearest to what I remember as “normal” bread before being diagnosed.
I have asked to be given the Warburton’s bread on my prescription but have been told that they are not available. This does not seem fair, because I am sure that all gluten-free loaves are roughly the same price.
Are they allowed to do this? I would really appreciate your opinion on this as it seems so unfair that they should give this bread to one diagnosed coeliac on prescription and not to another.
Any comments welcome….
