CCGs get guidance on evidence based interventions

New guidance that comes into effect next April supports CCGs to decide when certain interventions should be commissioned and offered.

It covers 17 interventions featured in a consultation earlier this year including surgery to prevent snoring and hand surgery for sufferers of carpal tunnel syndrome. All are procedures that should not be offered routinely or to every patient. The guidance includes detailed criteria for deciding when interventions should be offered.
