Gluten free food public consultation


In West Kent there has recently been a public consultation to review the future of gluten free foods being available on prescription.

Although no final decisions have been made, the Health Overview & Scruitiny Committee (HOSC) discussed the proposals on Friday. You can read the papers here

Healthawatch has a statutory role to scruitinise public consultations to ensure the correct process has been followed and that the public have been truly involved in any decisions.

You can read our scruitiny report along with a response from the Clinical Commissioning Group below. We have also attached our Best Practise Guide to Consultations so you can understand the legal requirements around consultations.

If you have any questions do contact us on info@healthwatchkent.co.uk
