New UCLH policy on interventional procedures

17 October 2018

UCLH has revised its policy on the introduction of new interventional procedures.

View the new policy.

The policy sets out the mandatory requirements which all UCLH staff must comply with if they wish to introduce an interventional procedure that is:

  • new to UCLH or
  • new to UCLH and for emergency or compassionate use for named patients or
  • new to UCLH and pre-trial or
  • a major modification to an existing interventional procedure or
  • new site or new indication for an existing interventional procedure.

Clinicians must ensure compliance with this policy, and any clinicians introducing new interventional procedures without appropriate permissions and review will be referred to their clinical director for consideration of this issue during their formal appraisal.
