IVF and specialist fertility services

At its meeting on Thursday 15 June 2017 our Board took the decision to suspend IVF and specialist fertility services with immediate effect.

This decision was taken as part of a six month review of and consultation on IVF and specialised fertility provision that we are undertaking. It by no means pre-determines the outcome of the consultation; it has been put in place to prevent an unsustainable backlog building up during the review period.

Exceptional cases, for example where a woman is at the upper age limit for IVF treatment during the consultation can be considered via an individual funding request (IFR) application.

There will be opportunities for all our stakeholders to get involved with the review and to provide input and feedback and we publicise these opportunities widely.
