IVF treatment delay causes anger

31st January 2013

Fertility expert Peter Bowen-Simpkins said the decision to end the contract with his Swansea clinic was purely ideological and comes as patients face waits of 18 months for the NHS service at Cardiff's University Hospital of Wales. The Welsh government says it is supporting work to build more capacity for IVF services, though it will be another year-and-a-half before a new NHS IVF unit at Port Talbot is open.
