Limited Resources

 

Unfortunately your Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has limited finances, which are set by NHS England on behalf of H M Government, for the community at large.  This sum does not allow your CCG to provide all possible clinical treatments wanted by its patients.  To provide the best overall benefit for the population at large, the CCG has to prioritise the forms of care it funds, which automatically implies that some patients’ needs cannot be provided at NHS expense.

 

Your GP is doing a very difficult job trying to get the most benefit out of the limited NHS resources available, for the greater good of their patients’ overall health.

 

Unfortunately, in the light of current CCG policies, although of significant importance to you, your clinical condition may not merit treatment at NHS expense, which is why your GP may not be able to complete your treatment request.

 

This does not imply that your concerns are being ignored or that your condition is trivial, just that in a cash limited system, some people’s genuine needs have to be subsumed for the greater good of the population at large, and possibly themselves when they might need highly expensive, but life prolonging treatment in future.

 

We appreciate your understanding of this very difficult situation.
