Key patient benefits are:
- Control – all patients have equal access and National units adhered to.
- Choice – patients can change the items they order each month.
- Monitoring – Universal health check standardised across Scotland.
Patients reported that they found it easier to change their order, they were more in control of their diet and the flexibility of the GFFS allowed them to try different products and reduced waste.
“So grateful for this service as our food is so expensive. Now I can have the basics on prescription, and it allows me a bit more variety.”
