Purchasing the best care you can, within the funds you have available, can be a challenge when patients’ needs can’t be met by standard health care packages. In these cases, you need expert support to ensure that decisions are made with the right processes, transparency and administration to enable the delivery of best patient care and the best use of public funds.
NHS Midlands and Lancashire CSU’s Individual Funding Request (IFR) team offers a specialist management and administration service to ensure that your IFR process is effective, transparent and consistent. We have extensive experience, having set up the IFR service in Cheshire & Merseyside and Lancashire.
Our service covers the screening and management of IFRs against clinical commissioning policies, exceptionality requests and developing policies to improve decision-making and equity. Our policies have been commended by clients and have been developed in conjunction with legal teams.
