2. Please state whether each listed procedure is covered by specific clinical commissioning criteria – these may be known as “Procedures of Low/Limited Clinical Value”, “Efficient Use of Resources”, or a similar term.

In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) and Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI) are covered by specific clinical commissioning criteria.  A copy of NHS Calderdale CCG’s Access to Infertility Treatment Policy can be found below.


3. Where a listed procedure is covered by PLCV/EUR policies as referred to in question 2, please state the date the most recently adopted criteria for each procedure took effect. Where the CCG (or cluster of CCGs, where appropriate) has simply continued to use the predecessor PCT’s criteria, please state this to be the case.

NHS Calderdale CCG’s Access to Infertility Treatment Policy took effect in October 2013.  copy of NHS Calderdale CCG’s Access to Infertility Treatment Policy can be found below.


4. Where the most recent PLCV/EUR clinical commissioning criteria for a procedure has been adopted since the CCG came into existence, please provide both the current criteria and the previous criteria that applied to that procedure.  For example, if the CCG adopted its most recent criteria for knee arthroscopy in May 2015, please provide both the criteria adopted in May 2015 and, separately, the criteria that was used until May 2015. Please note that old criteria are very unlikely to be published on the CCG website.

A copy of NHS Calderdale CCG’s Access to Infertility Treatment Policy has been supplied below.  There have been no changes to this policy since NHS Calderdale CCG came into existence on the 1st April 2013.
