Will The NHS Pay For My Treatment
The process for considering making additional NHS funding available for the exceptional patient, known as an Individual Funding Request.
An Individual Patient Funding Request
An 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.
How to Ask For A Review
Your doctor and you will hear the result of your funding request within two weeks of the IFR Panel decision. If you have been declined funding for your treatment you will receive a copy of the letter sent to your doctor explaining the reasons for this decision.
