Evaluation of the Individual Funding Request process

Consultation opened on 17 February 2015. Closing date 08 May 2015.


The Health Minister commissioned this evaluation in response to concerns that the Individual Funding Request process was not meeting its objective of providing access to unapproved specialist drugs where there is an agreed clinical need. This evaluation is intended to provide a repaid assessment of the IFR process and make recommendations as to whether the IFR should continue in its current form or if a new process should be considered.

Responses must be received no later than 5pm on Friday 8th May 2015.
