Our practice is part of South Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group. We are required to adhere to the CCG policies on treatment and prescribing. This means that from time to time patients may have their medication changed to less expensive products that the CCG deems will provide the same efficacy.
It also means that the CCG may decide that certain forms of treatment are too expensive for them to commission on the NHS. Sometimes it is possible to make exceptions but this requires the CCG to make a decision based on an 'exceptional funding' request.
Recent changes that we have been notified of are:
01.12.15. to 31.12.16. - Changes to the clinical thresholds policy - The CCG has decided that certain procedures/treatments are no longer financially affordable and will no longer be free from the NHS for patients registered in the CCG's area. This includes treatments such as: adult ear grommets, circumcision, Dupuytrens Contracture, excision of ganglion, female genital prolapse, hallux valgus (bunions), knee arthroscopy, second eye cataract, tonsillectomy, trigger finger - plus a number of other conditions. Their letter confirming this can be read here - South Norfolk CCG - Clinical Thresholds Policy
24.11.15. - IVF Treatment - Funding Stops - NHS South Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group has made the decision to cease funding for IVF treatment ("Level 3" Fertility Services). Read their full statement by clicking here.
14.10.15. - Gluten Free Products - No longer available on prescription - NHS South Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group has made the decision to stop funding for gluten free products on prescription. Read the letter that is being sent to patients affected by this change - SNCCG - Gluten Free Products letter
