IVF under threat in North East Essex

Embryo,_8_cells
If you live in North East Essex and need fertility treatment, you should be aware that your local commissioners are considering cutting IVF funding altogether – apparently because they have concluded that it “does not provide sufficient benefit to the overall health economy”…

Cost-cutting proposals

The plans to cut IVF funding are part of a range of cost-cutting measures by North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group aimed at saving £22 million pounds – although no longer providing IVF is a drop in the ocean which may not prove to be cost-effective anyway.

If you live anywhere near Colchester and would like to have your say, you may want to go along to the CCG meeting today (May 26) at 2.30pm at the Colchester Primary Care Centre in Turner Road which is open to the public and where you will be able to ask questions. You can find out more here
