When NHS England was set up it published a series of generic policies to guide its decision making for all directly commissioned services.

These policies apply to all of NHS England’s commissioning responsibilities, rather than being service-specific. However, stand-alone policies are required in four areas: 

  • In-year service developments.
  • Individual funding requests.
  • Funding for experimental and unproven treatments.
  • Continuing funding after clinical trials. 

Developments in these areas are not commissioned routinely or subject to mandated guidance from the National institute for Health and Care Excellence. 

NHS England is proposing changes to these stand-alone policies, which are set out here and seeks responses to its proposals here.
