IVF treatment suspended at PCT

1st September 2010

NHS Warrington has stopped funding in vitro fertilisation services in a cost cutting move that challenges guidance issued by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence.

NICE guidance states up to three full cycles of IVF should be made available on the NHS in England and Wales to eligible patients. However, NHS Warrington has said it will no longer be routinely offering the service with patients already in the system entitled to one round of IVF or one further round if they have already undergone the procedure.
