CCG Fertility Services Commissioning Policy

This policy outlines entitlement to NHS funded specialist fertility services for couples who do not have a living child from their current or any previous relationships, regardless of whether the child resides with them. This includes any adopted child within their current or previous relationships.

As of 2 June 2016, the policy attached replaces all previous versions. Any patients referred prior to the start date of the new IVF contract will be subject to the eligibility and treatment criteria prevailing at that time. Any patients referred after the commencement of the new Consortium contract will be subject to the revised criteria.

NICE clinical guidance on Fertility was updated in February 2013, Fertility CG156 updates and replaces NICE clinical guideline 11 published in 2004. The new guidelines recommend specialist fertility treatments to certain sections of the population for whom it was not previously recommended.
