An item on this afternoon’s (28 March) NHS West Kent Governing Body agenda to discuss recommendations following a recent consultation on stopping the prescribing of gluten free foods will not be discussed.

Dr Bob Bowes, Chair of NHS West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group explains:

 “In light of the story in the media about NHS England considering the prescribing of Gluten Free foods, NHS West Kent CCG is not going to discuss this issue at the Governing Body today”

NHS West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group plans and buys healthcare for the people of Maidstone, Tonbridge and Malling, Tunbridge Wells and the southern part of Sevenoaks.
