Increases in NHS funding for fertility

Y3qgabAY_400x400Great news from campaign group Fertility Fairness which reports that seven CCGs in Cheshire and Merseyside have increased their provision of IVF from two cycles to three.  The CCGs in question are Warrington, Eastern Cheshire, Wirral, Knowsley, Liverpool, South Cheshire and Vale Royal. It is hoped that four more in the area may follow their example.

Meanwhile, eight CCGs in Portsmouth , Southampton, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight region will decide whether to increase their provision next month.  You can find out more by visiting the Fertility Fairness website. Let’s hope that this excellent example is followed by others who are still not offering the full three cycles NICE recommends.
