Depending on where you live in the country and what you are ordering on prescription, the costs will vary.
If you live in Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales, your prescription is free. In England, if you’re over 60, between the ages of 0-16 or 16-18 in full time education, on income support or pregnant, you qualify for free prescriptions too.
The single prescription charge in England is £8.40 (April 2016). Each different category of gluten free food counts as one prescription charge (e.g. if you wanted bread and flour mix they would be two separate prescription charges). Therefore, we would recommend that if you are taking a regular gluten free prescription, you should opt for a prepaid prescription. A prepaid prescription covers the cost of all of your gluten free items for £2 per week.
