Fertility Treatment Debate on BBC Radio 4’s ‘You and Yours’ Programme

Should the NHS pay to treat fertility problems?

This week it’s National Fertility Awareness Week, and I’ve been contributing to various debates in the media on infertility and IVF treatment. Yesterday, I joined Radio 4’s ‘You and Yours’ programme to discuss cut-backs in the funding of IVF treatment by the NHS and the ‘post-code lottery’ around the country. Some Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) will fund the 3 cycles recommended by NICE for women under the age of 40, some will fund 1 or 2, and others don’t fund any at all. It all depends on where you live, which I believe is deeply unjust.
