Government to restrict GP prescribing of gluten-free foods from next month


It is always a double edge sword argument. The only positivity I want to take out of this is DHSC and hence, NHSE was ‘forced’ to show honesty and put the foot down making a decision from the top , rather than leaving it to GPs to exercise discretions , for instance. Addressing our workload is , by all means , the current priority. Whether the government is targeting a small group of people should be judged by the public and voters , I suppose .
