Rationing News

NHS England has published their response to the public consultation on Procedures of Limited Clinical value (things like tonsillectomy and grommets). This looks like a sensible approach. I hope this is adopted. Contrary to what you might think, if this is adopted, it would INCREASE access to surgery for many children with ENT problems. Current funding criteria are MORE restrictive than what NHS England proposes!
