Funding for specialised services

NHS England has set out the results of its annual process for deciding which new treatments and services it will make available to patients.

Around a hundred policies were considered over the course of the year.

Many of these were considered as in-year service developments – policies that are cost-saving or cost neutral. Twelve new treatments and services in this category have also been confirmed today.

Policies that require new investment are considered as part of the annual prioritisation process. Eighteen new treatments and services, together with some new genetic tests for rare inherited conditions, have provisionally been identified as affordable this year.
