Our extensive team of IFR specialists have a wealth of experience within NHS commissioning organisations, as well as an in-depth understanding of the provider market. We have worked with a number of different organisations on individual funding requests and are able to tailor our offer to meet your particular requirements.
We can work with you on projects of any scale; we screen and manage IFRs for systems covering 3.8 million patients. We allocate IFR case managers to each CCG so that we can offer a more personalised and local approach.
We can deliver joint IFR panels at scale between CCGs and develop collaborative clinical commissioning policies across CCGs in conjunction with the CSU Strategy Unit and local authority public health departments.
We offer IFR training events/master classes with expert speakers for those involved in IFRs and CCG decision makers. We receive very positive feedback on these events, and we adjust the number held per year to meet local demand.
We can provide a full administration service to enable you to deliver an effective IFR process, including setting up and managing screening, full panels and appeal panels. We can also help to ensure that your panels follow robust governance procedures and help reduce the risk of legal challenge.
We can help you to communicate the outcomes of panels with GPs, clinicians and patients and manage any queries they might have.
