Patient Information (NHS England)
Surgery to investigate and relieve heavy periods patient leaflet and dilatation and curettage video and hysterectomy video
Not Routinely Funded
Norfolk and Waveney CCGs do not fund D&C as a diagnostic or treatment option for heavy menstrual bleeding, as there is very little evidence to suggest that it works to investigate or treat heavy periods.
Cases for Individual Consideration
On a case to case basis, patients might be eligible for surgical intervention, in consideration of their exceptionality. The requesting clinician must provide information to support the case for being considered an exception, by submitting an individual funding request.
