Lancashire-wide review of clinical policies
The CCG is working with the other CCGs in Lancashire to make sure patients can access essential clinical services in a consistent and equitable way.
The CCGs are reviewing the clinical policies that are currently used to make decisions about the care and treatment people receive in areas such as cosmetic procedures, IVF and tonsillectomies. We are now working together to review these policies to:
- Ensure a consistent and fair approach across the county
- Develop a set of principles and policies against which decisions about care and treatment can be made
- Develop collaborative policies across the eight CCGs in Lancashire.
The first stage in this process was to agree the underlying principles for clinical policies and decision-making. These principles will help determine local decisions about whether individuals receive or are eligible to receive care or treatment. The principles can be viewed below.
