If there are exceptional clinical circumstances for a treatment or drug to be provided that the CCG does not usually fund, cases should be referred to the Individual Funding Request (IFR) Panel using the IFR Application Form. See the Individual Funding Request Policy for how decisions are made. The panel meets monthly. Requests are not accepted directly from patients.
How to apply
IFR applications can be made using the application form and sent by email (address below).
Before making an application please see the IFR application process in the Downloads section.
Note that all applications need to clearly show that patient consent has been obtained. Without this, the IFR team are unable to accept referrals and these will be returned.
