We have produced a range of both clinical and corporate policies to ensure that staff provide, and patients receive high quality care and treatment. The Equality Analysis of our policies is attached at the end of each policy.

Please note: we are in the process of updating this documentation to reflect our new organisation (NHS Dorset), the policies provided and operated under have been identified as fit for purpose and have been temporarily carried over from NHS Dorset CCG.

Clinical policies

Clinical policies and criteria based access protocols in respect of treatments which are not routinely commissioned are currently being reviewed. Where reviews have been completed, the updated policy or protocol has been incorporated on this site.

If you are unable to locate a policy which relates to a specific treatment or you would like to discuss the clinical criteria for access in respect of a particular treatment then please contact:
