Details of the IFR Panel and Appeals Panel process can be found via the North Lincolnshire CCG IFR Policy and Procedures document here.
In line with national terminology, the interventions listed have been classified as follows:
- Category 1 Interventions – Interventions that are not routinely commissioned, due to there being little evidence to support the intervention. Cases are examined on an individual basis where clinical exceptionality is considered through the Individual Funding Request (IFR) process accessed via https://ifryh.necsu.nhs.uk/
- Category 2 Interventions – Interventions are restricted and should only be performed after specific criteria are met via the Prior Approval process (VBC Checker), which enables an immediate funding decision on the intervention requested at the point of care accessed via https://vbcchecker.necsu.nhs.uk/Account/Login?ReturnUrl=%2F

HUMBER CCG CLINICAL COMMISSIONING POLICY STATEMENTS
Read policy statement here.
Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire, and North East Lincolnshire CCGs have worked together to align their clinical commissioning policy statements across the Humber area to reduce the variation in the content and implementation of adopted policies.
Please note the lists of commissioning policy statements above are not exhaustive of all interventions not routinely commissioned by the CCG. For any medical procedure or treatment that is not routinely commissioned where there is not a specific policy statement, a request via the IFR process must still be made.
