House of Commons
ENDING THE IVF POSTCODE LOTTERY
EDM #2717
Tabled 25 September 2019
2017-19 Session
That this House calls for an end to the postcode lottery for IVF treatment on the NHS; believes that the Government must hold local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to account and legislate to ensure that access to IVF provision on the NHS is equal across England; recognises that all CCGs should be required to offer the same number of rounds of IVF on the NHS; welcomes the fact that many CCGs follow the NICE guidelines that women under 40 should be offered 3 cycles of IVF treatment on the NHS; and calls on the Government to ensure adequate funding and support is in place to ensure that all CCGs in England follow those guidelines.
