South East London Treatment Access Policy
The South East London Treatment Access Policy deals with treatments and procedures for which restricted access criteria have been agreed. The treatments and procedures covered by the policy can be found here.
The policy is reviewed and updated on an annual basis. We have now completed our most recent review, updating the evidence and drawing on input from local clinical staff. We have also incorporated procedures from:
- Evidence-Based Interventions Programme which was established and developed between five national partners: the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, NHS Clinical Commissioners, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence as well as NHS England and Improvement
- London Choose Wisely which is a clinically-led review of evidence for a set of surgical procedures, looking to ensure they are used consistently across London and their use follows a criteria that ultimately improves the health of patients
Following this review we will be making some changes to the south east London Treatment Access Policy which will be incorporated from 1st of April 2019. Please click here to view the updated policy.
The policy will be monitored by Clinical Commissioning Groups across south east London.
