6 CCG Clinicians are entitled to make a request (an "individual funding request") to the IFR Panel for treatment to be funded by the CCG outside of its established policies on one of two grounds, namely: The patient is suffering from a presenting medical condition for which the CCG has no policy ("an individual request"), or The patient is suffering from a presenting medical condition for which the CCG has a policy but where the patient's particular clinical circumstances are perceived by the referring clinician to fall outside that policy ("an exceptionality request"). Where an experimental or unproven treatment is sought, this will be regarded as "an individual request". Public Health, Year 4 MMS, O&G 6

7 NHS England Clinicians, on behalf of their patients, are entitled to make a request (an “individual funding request”) to the NHS CB for treatment that is not normally commissioned by the NHS CB under defined conditions: The request does not constitute a request for a service development; AND The patient is suffering from a medical condition for which the NHS CB has commissioning responsibility and a commissioning position and the patient’s particular clinical circumstances falls outside the criteria set out in an existing commissioning policy for funding the requested treatment OR The patient is suitable to enter a clinical trial which requires individual explicit funding by the NHS CB as opposed to being part of a group of such trial patients OR The patient has a rare clinical circumstance, thus rendering it impossible to carry out clinical trials, and for whom the clinician wishes to use an existing treatment on an experimental basis.
