The service also works collaboratively with the GM EUR Steering Group to develop GM EUR treatment policies on behalf of the 10 GM CCGs. This work has harmonised core set of treatment policies:

  • Ensure policies incorporate the most up-to-date published clinical evidence so that we prioritise funded treatments that are proven to have clinical benefit for patients.
  • Stop variation in access to NHS funded services across Greater Manchester (sometimes called the ‘postcode lottery’ in the media) and allow fair and equitable treatment for all local patients.
  • Ensure access to NHS funded treatment is equal and fair, whilst considering the needs of the overall population and evidence of clinical and cost effectiveness
