Services we commission
We commission a wide range of services. These include planned hospital care, rehabilitation services, urgent and emergency care, most community health services, mental health and learning disability services, and family doctor (GP) services
Many of these services are provided by local NHS organisations, such as Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust. We also commission services from voluntary, not-for-profit organisations, based in the local community.
Services we do not commission
There are also some treatments, available on the NHS, which are not routinely funded. These include:
- cosmetic procedures,
- various fertility treatments,
- treatments not approved by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
If you require funding for treatment that is not routinely funded, your doctor can make an individual funding request (IFR) on your behalf.
