How to Refer to the Service

NHS organisations in Scotland who wish to make a referral can do so without having to apply for separate funding. NHS Trusts in England and Wales are required to obtain funding before patients can be seen.

Please see the table below to determine whether funding is required:

Patients from Scotland can be assessed without additional funding. If they proceed to neurosurgery, this can be provided within the Service Level Agreement (SLA). If Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) is requested and is clinically-appropriate, additional funding will be required even for Scottish patients as VNS is no longer funded as part of our SLA.
