Clinical Commissioning Groups in Hampshire
Please read or download the following documents for more information about policy and procedure for Individual Funding Requests (IFRs) and the management of restricted treatment and procedures concerning Clinical Commissioning Groups.

For West Hampshire CCG patients only, a range of procedures are commissioned on an outpatients basis only as opposed to daycase or other elective work. These include benign skin lesions, some joint injections and minor hand procedures and a list of procedure codes detailing these is provided. The attached form is required to be submitted giving justification for a daycase procedure to go ahead rather than in outpatients. This form is for secondary care use only as the decision to treat a patient as a daycase is made by the listing specialist. Where the procedure is already subject to a prior approval arrangement then the attached form will need to be submitted in addition to the existing proforma.
Day Case Form– Word Format
DC to OP reference codes 160919

For carpal tunnel procedures, please note that this is no longer subject to prior approval in terms of clinical access criteria, but the form will need to be completed by providers seeking to carry this out in a day case setting.

These documents detail the decision-making arrangements for the management of restricted and excluded procedures across the various systems in Hampshire
