That this House welcomes National Infertility Day on Saturday 10th June 2006; notes that around one in seven couples in the UK are affected by this disease, which can cause profound psychological and emotional strain; deplores the fact that huge inequalities in access to NHS treatment exist despite the 2004 National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) clinical guideline on fertility; congratulates Infertility Network UK, ACeBabes and all associated for organising the largest one-day conference ever hosted by infertility patient associations; praises the work of the National Infertility Awareness Campaign in highlighting the need for greater equity in the provision of NHS-funded treatment; and calls for full implementation of the NICE clinical guideline to ensure that all couples receive equal access to infertility treatment, regardless of where they live.
