Some good news on the fertility funding front – finally fertility patients in Vale of York will be able to access some NHS-funded IVF treatment. For the last five years, those living in the area have not been able to have any funded treatment at all.
Today, commissioners in Vale of York made the decision to fund one cycle of IVF for eligible women under the age of 39. Of course, this is still some way from the NICE guideline which recommends three full cycles for eligible women under the age of 39, but it is a big step in the right direction for an area which hasn’t been funding at all.
