The Thames Valley Priorities Committee has found insufficient evidence of clinical and cost effectiveness to warrant the commissioning of aesthetic treatments and therefore these procedures are not normally funded. Adults and children will not normally be offered aesthetic treatments in either specialist, secondary or primary care.
Referring patients for treatments that can only be funded in exceptional circumstances may raise false expectations.
If clinicians consider that their patient’s case for an aesthetic intervention provides grounds for funding as an exception to policy, then an application for individual funding should be submitted to their NHS Clinical Commissioning Group
