Clinical Policy Committee

Clinical Policy Committee

Through the Clinical Policy Committee NHS NEW Devon CCG and South Devon and Torbay CCG work together to carry out their responsibilities for making local decisions about the funding of medicines and treatments in the NHS. 

The committee makes recommendations to the CCGs for approval following clinical discussion of the issues. 

The committee makes recommendations to members of the CCGs on whether specific treatments represent good value, appropriate, evidence based choices for adoption into primary care treatment plans via formularies and clinical management pathways. 

Existing Individual Funding Panel processes still operate alongside the Clinical Policy Committee. Further details of the panel process for NHS NEW Devon CCG can be found here.
