Folder Individual Funding Requests
Each Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is allocated a fixed amount of money for the healthcare needs of its local population. CCGs follow a prioritisation process to decide which treatments and services will be funded as it is not possible to fund every available treatment. The aim of the prioritisation process is to ensure services offer the most benefit to the largest number of patients, whilst also ensuring the process is fair to the whole population and that public money is spent wisely.
As a result there are a number of treatments and services that Herefordshire CCG does not routinely fund. However, your GP or Consultant may make a request for a treatment or service that we do not routinely fund if they feel there are exceptional clinical circumstances related to your case.
This process is known as the Individual Funding Request (IFR) Process.
