We assess most applications in the order we receive them.
We may give priority to your application if it's critical to either:
- increasing capacity in the health and social care system
- helping the system recover from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic
We will need written evidence that your application is urgent. This must be from either:
- an NHS trust
- a clinical commissioning group
- a local authority
If you need to start your service urgently, it's best to contact us as early as you can.
