NHS Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group carried out a consultation between 9 September and 23 October 2013 to seek the views of patients with coeliac disease, staff and partner organisations on service improvements and additional new services that they believe should be provided to support patients in the diagnosis, treatment and on-going monitoring of coeliac disease.
We have now produced a report following the feedback, and this will be used to inform decisions on the services to be provided across Somerset for patients with coeliac disease. Read the report here
