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.
