IVF access improves

18th June 2009

Figures from the Department of Health show that more than a quarter of local health bodies are offering the recommended three free cycles of fertility treatment to couples trying to have a child.

The department said 27% of English primary care trusts offer three cycles - up from just 5% in 2007. Infertility Network UK, which campaigns for better access to fertility care, has worked with the department to improve access to NHS treatment and while welcoming the increase it said there was still "a long way to go".
