If you live in Dorset, you have a unique opportunity to make a difference to the future for people with fertility problems in your community.
Dorset CCG has launched a consultation on reducing the number of cycles of IVF for fertility patients from two cycles of NHS-funded treatment to one. The current provision already falls short of what is recommended, so it’s absolutely vital that as many people as possible living n Dorset respond to the consultation and let their voices be heard.
Don’t forget that the guidance from NICE recommends three full cycles of NHS-funded IVF for eligible women of 39 and under and one cycle for women of 40-42 who meet certain criteria. This is based on what is clinically and cost effective.
So, if you live in Dorset or your GP is based in Dorset, please do take a few moments to complete the consultation – you can find it on the CCG website here http://www.dorsetccg.nhs.uk/
