Funding Request Process

How does the IFR/IPA System work in practice?

The Greater Manchester (GM) Effective Use of Resources (EUR) Treatment Policies represent treatments that are only be made available if specific criteria are met or where they are only available in exceptional circumstances. Each treatment policy:

  • Outlines the rationale behind the policy statement
  • Gives a brief description of the treatment
  • Has a summary of what clinical guidance has been used to inform the detail of the policy
