Just a quick reminder that there’s still time to have your say on fertility funding in mid-Essex where the CCG are proposing to cut fertility treatment to all fertility patients – and only offer it to people who are having cancer treatment and HIV positive men. Why those two groups? You may well ask… It seems that both were mentioned in last year’s update of the NICE fertility guidelines – but that was only because the way these groups should be offered treatment needed updating, not because they were being singled out in any other way.
One of the fertility clinics in the area, Simply Fertility, have come out and expressed their concern about this – and you can do that too. Have a look at the Simply Fertility blog for more details, or go straight to the consultation here and fill in the survey by following the link. It doesn’t take long, and your views will be appreciated.
