Implementation of revised and updated clinical policies

[column]

A revised and updated clinical policy on complementary and alternative therapies and a new policy on rehabilitation after damage to the facial nerve have been approved by NHS Fylde and Wyre Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

The policies have been agreed on a Lancashire-wide basis following a public engagement exercise which ensures all patients receive the same level of care wherever they live in the county.

These two clinical policies explain the criteria that must be met in order for these treatments and procedures to be given on the NHS in this area.

GPs and hospital doctors and consultants are required to follow these policies when considering your treatment.
