The NHS has limited resources. Bedfordshire CCG is responsible for using these in the most effective way for our local population. The treatments it routinely funds are those which are regarded as safe and effective, and which give the best value in terms of health improvements for the available funding.
Treatments which BCCG doesn't routinely fund are those likely to bring little or no health benefits - sometimes known as 'procedures of low clinical value'. Examples might be breast augmentation, or skin tag removal, since these procedures would typically address cosmetic rather than medical concerns.

Treatments initiated within the private sector are not routinely funded or extended.
