On Friday 1st July 2022 clinical commissioning groups (CCG's) across the country were closed and were replaced by new NHS organisations known as Integrated Care Boards.

Therefore, NHS East Lancashire CCG no longer exists and has been replaced (along with the othe seven CCGs in Lancashire and South Cumbria) by the new NHS Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Board (ICB)

Management of Otitis Media with Effusion (OME) using grommets

Have your say

As part of the ongoing review of clinical policies for all the NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Lancashire and South Cumbria, we are now seeking views and comments on the two latest policies to be reviewed.

The latest draft clinical policies open for patient and public feedback are as follows:

  • policy for the commissioning of photorefractive surgery for the correction of refractive error
  • policy for management of Otitis Media with Effusion (OME) using grommets

The draft policies can be found below. You are invited to read the updated clinical policies before giving your feedback. You can click on the link next to each policy in order to complete a short survey and give your views.

To help you we have also included a Level of Change document that identifies what has been changed in the updated policies compared to the previous policies. There is also a Frequently Asked Questions document that may answer any queries you have about the process or about these policies.
