NHS England (NHSE) has issued statutory commissioning guidance to CCGs to introduce and implement commissioning policies for 17 selected interventions.
The aim of the statutory guidance is to reduce the number of inappropriate interventions provided on the NHS and to avoid needless harm to patients. This will free-up scarce professional time for performing other interventions, which will be reinvested in patient care.
