Single women to get free IVF treatment

24th October 2011

The Daily Mail reports that a fifth of health authorities in Britain are giving single females free IVF treatment. 

The results of a survey showed that 24 out of 135 primary health trusts offered single women a course of free £3,000 IVF treatment, but in some trusts couples had to pay for treatment. Labour MP Frank Field said: "It is clearly wrong that while couples in stable relationships can’t get IVF, in other areas single women can. It’s really important that ministers speak up for children who are the ones left out of this."
