Fertility quango sits on £3.4m

16th February 2012

The Human Fertility and Embryology Authority has £3.4 million of unspent funds at a time that thousands of women are being refused IVF on the NHS because it is too expensive.

Figures show the surplus has been built up by the HFEA from the £75 fee paid by the NHS and private clinics to it every time a woman has treatment but could pay for 850 women to have treatment. Campaigners want the organisation to give the money back to NHS trusts which are refusing women IVF because they are so short of money.
