Contribute to the decision making of the Individual Funding Request (IFR) panel
Do you have spare time each month to contribute to the decision making of the Individual Funding Request (IFR) panel ?
As medical technology advances, a large number of new treatments become available every year – including drugs, medical devices and new surgical techniques.
An individual funding request can be made by the clinician treating you if they believe that because your clinical circumstances are exceptional, you may receive benefit from a treatment or service that isn't routinely offered by the NHS.
