Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Defence Intelligence: Staff (2 Nov 2016)

Kevan Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, how many civilian staff within Defence Intelligence are (a) men, (b) women and (c) from black and minority ethnic groups.

Coeliac Disease and Prescriptions (1 Nov 2016)

Kevan Jones: I beg to move, That this House has considered coeliac disease and prescriptions. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey. I am grateful for the opportunity to hold a debate that raises awareness of the problems facing those who suffer from coeliac disease and of access to gluten-free food prescriptions. It would be remiss of me not to thank the work of Coeliac UK, the...

Coeliac Disease and Prescriptions (1 Nov 2016)

Kevan Jones: I agree, and I shall refer to certain demographics—pensioners being one—that are particularly affected by these proposals. Some 40% of CCGs in England are now choosing to restrict or remove support for patients with coeliac disease, which is leading to increasing health inequalities and, basically, a postcode lottery for NHS care, depending on where someone is diagnosed. The...

Coeliac Disease and Prescriptions (1 Nov 2016)

Kevan Jones: My hon. Friend raises an interesting point. There is evidence—including from my own family—that gluten intolerance and coeliac disease run in families. If a young family includes several children with this condition, the cost could be significant.

Coeliac Disease and Prescriptions (1 Nov 2016)

Kevan Jones: The hon. Gentleman raises an interesting point, especially in terms of families with children. There is also a question of availability in some rural areas. Larger supermarkets stock some of these products at the prices he mentioned and higher, but in other areas the products are not available.

Coeliac Disease and Prescriptions (1 Nov 2016)

Kevan Jones: I will make a bit more progress. We have a situation where, in places such as east Essex, the needs of patients are being discounted despite a complete lack of any type of research. I am concerned that more CCGs across the country will begin to use inadequate justifications as a precedent and follow a similar path. That leads me back to my earlier point about the big problem of...

Coeliac Disease and Prescriptions (1 Nov 2016)

Kevan Jones: The right hon. Gentleman raises a serious point about the life-changing effects that coeliac disease can have. I was only diagnosed by accident, in my 30s; my mother was not diagnosed until she was over 70. Early diagnosis is important, but it is not uncommon for people to live a long time without one being made. The Health and Social Care Act 2012 included a duty on CCGs to have regard for...

Coeliac Disease and Prescriptions (1 Nov 2016)

Kevan Jones: The hon. Lady raises an interesting point, but I assure her that the products available today are completely different from when I was first diagnosed. The bread then was like cardboard, and today it is very much different. There is a general duty for GPs to prescribe treatments for health conditions via the FP10 prescribing system where treatment is available, and in the case of coeliac...

Coeliac Disease and Prescriptions (1 Nov 2016)

Kevan Jones: It can. There is some anecdotal evidence about the connection between coeliac disease and mental health. The hon. Gentleman raises an interesting point. This situation is creating considerable uncertainty for those who rely on access to gluten-free staples on prescription, and it is the vulnerable who are most adversely affected. Individuals with the disease are not eating gluten-free food...

Coeliac Disease and Prescriptions (1 Nov 2016)

Kevan Jones: That is the main point. What some CCGs are doing is a false economy, because one hospital admission will cost more than the annual cost of prescriptions for an individual who adheres to a gluten-free diet. Another person living with coeliac disease, Janice, who is a constituent of mine, wrote to me saying: “I strongly believe that these plans will cause more expense to the government...

Coeliac Disease and Prescriptions (1 Nov 2016)

Kevan Jones: That is not even taken into consideration, as my hon. Friend says. My concern is that cutting prescriptions for gluten-free products is a simple and easy target for CCGs under financial pressure. The entire prescription cost to the NHS in 2014 was 26.8 million or 0.27% of the total prescription budget—194 per patient. The procurement system that the NHS has in place is not...
