Commissioning policy

Last updated May 2018

The Criteria Based Clinical Treatments policy describes the eligibility criteria under which Merseyside and Cheshire CCGs commission treatments or interventions classified as ‘Criteria Based Clinical Treatments’ (CBCT).

The term Criteria Based Clinical Treatments, refers to procedures and treatments that are of value, but only in the right clinical circumstances. Previously, they were referred to as Procedures of Low Clinical Priority (PLCP) or the Liverpool Commissioning Policy.
