Clinical Recommendations Committee (CRC)
The Clinical Recommendations Committee ("CRC") forms part of the Policy Approval Process outlined on the DHSC Webpage – DHSC Clinical Commissioning Policies
In brief the CRC considers each intervention against the ethical framework and assesses the clinical and cost effectiveness of the intervention, the number of people in the population who would benefit from it, the impact it would have on their health and that of their carers/families and the likely cost of providing the intervention to all eligible patients.
For further information on the role of the CRC please see the DHSC Clinical Commissioning Webpage.
Please follow this link to view DHSC Clinical Commissioning Policies issued since January 2017 onwards.
