Aesthetics Policy (Coventry & Rugby CCG)

  

Coventry & Rugby CCG consider funding of treatments designed to improve aesthetic appearance to be of low priority in allocating limited NHS resources. However, the Clinical Commissioning Group recognises that, in certain cases, a cosmetic procedure may be justified to alleviate or improve a physical deformity that most people would recognise as being severely abnormal, or to meet a clinical need other than improvement of aesthetic appearance. This policy sets out principles and examples of eligibility criteria for funding treatment in such cases
