An Individual (Patient) Funding Request

IFRimage2An Individual Funding Request (IFR) is an application to fund healthcare which falls outside the range of services and treatments which are routinely commissioned. These requests are considered by an IFR Panel which considers evidence of clinical and cost effectiveness, as well as equity for the whole population.

Applications for IFR funding must be made by a patient’s NHS Clinician using one of the following two forms:

  • The IFR form for hospital/secondary care use can be accessed here
  • The Datix IFR form for completion by GPs can be accessed on this intranet link here

(Please note that there are a number of specialised services and treatments that are commissioned separately by NHS England which has its own IFR route.)
