Not Routinely Funded
Norfolk and Waveney Integrated Care Board (ICB) will fund one course of treatment if Endocrinological assessment confirms presence of underlying medical disease and all the following criteria are met:
- Severe facial hair needing to shave/wax/any form of hair removal every 2-3 days
- Patient does not respond to or cannot tolerate oral therapies
- Reassessment at the end of the course of treatment should show evidence of significant benefit.
Subsequent requests for further treatment must also be submitted via IFR.
Note: Facial hair removal is the commissioning responsibility of NHS England for patients who are undergoing gender reassignment. For patients undergoing gender reassignment surgery, hair removal from donor sites for reconstructive surgery is approved in accordance with the NHS England Specialised Commissioning Group Gender Dysphoria Commissioning Policy: https://www.england.nhs.uk/commissioning/spec-services/npc-crg/gender-dysphoria-clinical-programme/
