An individual funding request is an application to fund healthcare which falls outside the range of services and treatments which are routinely commissioned. These requests are considered by a panel which considers evidence of clinical and cost effectiveness, as well as equity for the whole population. Read our individual funding request policy (PDF, 521 KB).
Please note that applications should be received no later than 10 working days before each panel.
