Levelling up in London? (BioNews)

‘Same sex couples in Enfield and Haringey can currently access NHS funding for intrauterine insemination (IUI), but same sex couples in Barnet, Camden and Islington cannot. In addition, if patients wishing to use donor eggs have self-funded the provision of their donor gametes, they can access NHS-funded IVF in Barnet, Enfield and Islington, but not in Camden and Haringey.’

A useful article highlighting some of the current inequalities in NHS-funded fertility treatment (mainly in London but also elsewhere) in the context of the upcoming North Central London CCG fertility policy review. Those living or using services in the five relevant London boroughs are invited to give their views on the current policies and what they think should be considered in developing a single, new fertility policy. This will help to inform the recommendations produced by the review.

The deadline for completed questionnaires is 9 July 2021.
