RaTC – All specialties

Although the vast majority of treatments that patients need are routinely offered by the NHS, patients may enquire about low priority and restricted-access treatments. This does not necessarily mean that an IFR (individual funding request) application is needed

Check the Referral and Treatment Criteria below.  If the patient meets the criteria a referral can be made without need for an IFR.  If the patient does not meet criteria or the treatment is unavailable, only apply for an IFR if you can demonstrate exceptionality or rarity:

  • Exceptionality – the patient is significantly different to and more likely to benefit as compared to the cohort
  • Rarity – the situation is so unusual that no policy has been warranted
