NHS England Low Priority Treatment - fentanyl immediate release by all Sub-ICB Locations

Why it matters: Fentanyl, in the form of tablets, lozenges, films and nasal spray, is an opioid analgesic used for breakthrough cancer pain. There is little evidence it is more effective than oral morphine (such as oramorph) but it is much more expensive. This indicator does not include fentanyl patches, which are not immediate release.
