Individual patient funding

Individual patient funding is considered when an Individual Funding Request (IFR) or an Exceptional Funding Request (EFR) is made to the CCG. 

IFRs request the CCG to fund healthcare for individuals who fall outside the range of services and treatments that CCG already commissions, if there is no policy held by the Commissioning Authority for the treatment requested.

EFRs request the CCG to fund healthcare for a patient deemed to have exceptional clinical circumstances; i.e. outside the normal range presented by other patients.

Please see the related pages on Exceptional Cases and Individual Funding, and Personal health budgets for further information.
