Exceptional Cases Panel
The Exceptional Cases Panel is an independent panel which is made up of BLMK CCG staff members, GP’s and BLMK Public Health consultants that have not been involved in the patient’s care. Any panel members who have any conflicts of interest with a particular case will be excluded from the discussion of that case.
Other individuals with specific expertise and skills may be requested to attend the panel on a non-voting basis, as and when necessary, in order to clarify funding issues for complex cases.
There is no right of attendance at the Exceptional Cases Panel by the requesting clinician, the patient or their representative.
The panel considers the requests from clinicians based on the information provided.
