We wish to bring to the attention of patients and members of the public that revised and updated clinical policies on dilatation and curettage, hysteroscopy, hip arthroscopy and cosmetic procedures have been approved by the CCG.

These clinical policies explain the criteria that must be met in order for these treatments and procedures to be given on the NHS in this area.

GPs and hospital doctors and consultants are required to follow these policies when considering your treatment.

The policies can be read on this website here: http://blackpoolccg.nhs.uk/about-blackpool-ccg/our-policies/clinical-commissioning-policies/.
