Individual funding requests

An individual funding request can be made by your 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.

This information is for GPs and NHS staff

All Individual Funding Request (IFR) applications must clearly show that patient consent has been obtained.  If the IFR team cannot see that patient consent has been provided, they are unable to log the request and cannot review it against the relevant policies.

Please make sure you use the current IFR application form and POLCV policy when making a request.  Any applications submitted on old forms or without evidence of patient consent will be returned and will not be actioned by the IFR team.

The IFR team can be contacted on 020 3688 1290 (9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday) with any queries.
