Individual Funding Requests

On an individual basis, there may be situations where a clinician believes that their patient’s clinical situation is so different to other patients with the same condition that they should have their treatment paid for when other patients would not. In such cases, NHS clinicians can ask NHS England, on behalf of a patient, to fund a treatment which would not usually be provided by NHS England for that patient. This request is called an Individual Funding Request (IFR).

Although we can submit a request for funding (IFR), NHS England to decide if it will be granted or not.  Not all IFR’s are approved.
