Individual Funding Requests (IFR)
A request for individual funding can be made by a doctor or other health professional if they believe that a particular treatment or service that is not routinely offered by the NHS is the best treatment for you, given your individual clinical circumstances.
There are 2 panels in Norfolk who consider requests for funding for both drug and non-drug based treatments in line with the IFR Commissioning Policy.
The Norfolk IFR Panels are chaired by:
- IFR Drugs Panel – Chair Christine Walton, Prescribing Advisor, North East London Commissioning Support Unit (NEL CSU)
- IFR Non-Drugs Panel – Chair Irene MacDonald, Lay Member NHS Norwich CCG
