"Rotherham Coeliac service is invaluable"

About: Adult community services / Nutrition and dietetics

(as the patient),

Had to fill in questionnaire for my situation- some of the questions don't seem to apply.

Overall I think the new arrangement for receiving gluten-free products is excellent. I am able to try other things and change my prescription without feeling I am a nuisance. (NB The surgery never made me feel I was a nuisance-but I hated to be a bother)

I really wish this arrangement had been available when I was first diagnosed (1992). Especially as regular meetings are arranged with a dietician. The overall service is invaluable to anyone newly diagnosed. I wish it was available to all coeliacs. Rotherham is to be commended.
