Following on from the treatment policies published in 2016/17, in July 2017 the Birmingham and Solihull CCGs began working with clinicians and key stakeholders to discuss and assess the evidence and current guidance relating to 22 further treatments and procedures:

  1. Acupuncture
  2. Assisted conception
  3. Breast implant revision surgery
  4. Bunions
  5. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  6. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  7. Complementary and alternative therapies
  8. Cough assist machines
  9. Dupuytren's Contracture
  10. Earwax
  11. Gamete retrieval
  12. Hernia
  13. Hip arthoroscopy
  14. Kidney stones
  15. Knee arthoroscopy
  16. MRI scanning (upright)
  17. Port wine stains
  18. Rectal bleeding
  19. Reversal of female sterilisation
  20. Reversal of male sterilisation

We completed an engagement exercise to listen and understand the thoughts and views on the proposed new harmonised treatment policies with members of the public, patients and key stakeholder groups. This was completed by carrying out an online survey and we held a number of engagement events across the local area between 14 May and 22 June 2018.
