There are inadequate provisions for coeliacs in SUSU Shop. I am hoping that I can directly address this issue and would be happy to meet with whomever has the authority to make the necessary changes to explain why this should be a priority.

Coeliac disease is an autoimmune disease affecting 1 in 4 of the population. Of 25,180 students (2016/17 figures) so roughly 6295 students at the University living with coeliac disease, and yet more with a non-coeliac gluten intollerance. I therefore find it inadequate that such a leading university fails to adequately cater for these students.
