Have your say - NHS England consults public about Evidence-Based Interventions

People are being asked for their views about plans to stop offering treatments that are clinically ineffective.   

NHS England is proposing that the following interventions should no longer be routinely commissioned by CCGs because they are ineffective or have been superseded by a safer alternative:

  • Snoring Surgery (in the absence of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea)
  • Dilatation and curettage for heavy menstrual bleeding in women
  • Knee arthroscopy for patients with osteoarthritis
  • Injections for nonspecific low back pain without sciatica

 

They are also recommending that thirteen other interventions should only be performed in specific circumstances where they have been proved to be clinically effective. The deadline for responding is Friday 28 September 2018.
