We wish to bring to the attention of patients and members of the public that a new clinical policy on the following treatment has been approved by the CCG. This is:
This clinical policy explains the criteria that must be met for this treatment/procedure to be given on the NHS in this area.
Arrangements are being made with GPs and hospital doctors and consultants, who are required to follow this policy when considering your treatment, for the implementation of this policy. Whilst this takes place there may be a period during which patients who were referred for treatment before this policy was approved continue to be managed as they were originally referred.
If you have any questions about whether you are eligible for this treatment, you should discuss this with your clinician.
