I have coeliac disease and I have always had a really good service from my dietician and get on really well with her.
However there doesn’t seem to be much communication with the pharmacy. I got a prescription and there was not mention of charges. I asked the pharmacist and they didn’t mention any charges and then when I went to pick up my order I got told I had to pay for each line of the prescription.
This comes to over £40 and I could have got a lot of the items cheaper from the supermarket. I now know there are options in place that mean I can have a prescription card etc but I think it would be good if the dieticians could discuss payments with patients before ordering products so it is clear what you have to pay for and how.
