Gluten Free Food Products

Monday, February 4, 2019


With the change to the English Gluten Free Formula there have been reports, when dispensing items, PMR’s are displaying a warning message indicating that these items are blacklisted for Gluten Free Food products.

If you are presented with this warning message and you are satisfied that the Gluten Free Food product is in Part 16 of the Scottish Drug Tariff you can dispense this item and be reimbursed accordingly. 

Suppliers have been asked to create Scottish attributes to accommodate these changes in policy for Scotland and England and expect to have them implemented later this year. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Pharmacy Services team on 0131 466 3540.
