We are demanding an end to the IVF postcode lottery. NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidelines for fertility treatment recommend 3 NHS funded cycles of IVF for women under the age of 40 suffering with infertility. In England, over 80% of CCG's FAIL to follow this guidance, meaning your access to IVF depends hugely on your postcode. Some CCG's offer 3, some 2, some 1... and some, none at all. This is absolutely unjustified and unfair; it is huge inequality for couples all across the country who suffer with infertility - something the World Health Organisation define as a disease of the reproductive system. We are demanding that CCG's are held accountable, that they are to follow the NICE guidance and offer fair and equal treatment to IVF. #FightForIVF
Update #23 months ago
Following the cross-party letter written by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough MPs to their CCG, a meeting was scheduled for today between the Peterborough MP, Paul Bristow, Fight For IVF and the CCG to discuss the review they have agreed to as a result of our campaign. Unfortunately, the CCG postponed this meeting due to it falling within the pre-election period and the protocols surrounding Operation Forth Bridge. This will be rearranged as soon as possible. Thank you for your continued support!
