Priorities Committee Policies

You may have heard about some treatments being "low priority". This is decided following an in depth review of the evidence about how effective and how safe a treatment is and a discussion of this by members of the Priorities Committee.

The committee has many members including Consultants, GPs, Public Health Consultants, Pharmacists, Patients, Commissioners, legal advisers and ethical advisers.

If something is classed as "low priority" it is felt that NHS resources could have more benefit if it were used for another treatment instead. Visit the Berkshire East Individual Funding Requests website for more information
