Individual Funding Requests


Can I get this treatment on the NHS?

This section explains how NHS Haringey Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) makes decisions about providing treatments that are not normally available through the National Health Service (NHS).

Like any other organisation, the NHS has limited resources and we have a duty to manage them carefully.

This means we have to:

  • look at the clinical reasons for exceptionality in individual cases;
  • look at evidence for the safety and effectiveness of any treatment; and
  • ensure that the services we pay for will give patients the greatest health gains from the resources we have.

We have a policy that sets out the principles behind our decisions on individual treatments.  It also explains the system we have for processing each request for treatment. This policy is called The Individual Funding Request Process Policy (IFR Policy - available in the downloads section).
