Sajid Javid launches devolution deal in Cambridgeshire

  • Video report by ITV News Anglia's Matthew Hudson

The race has officially started to become the first mayor for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, with a range of new powers and a budget of hundreds of millions of pounds.

The Communities and Local Government Secretary Sajid Javid was in Wisbech to urge people to use their vote on May 4th.

The new combined authority will have devolved powers from the Government over areas including housing, transport and education.

I'm here today to sign this ground breaking devolution deal. It means a lot more powers coming to Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and a lot more money - almost £800m pounds of new money.

It will lead to jobs through investment in skills and transport and to get the right deal for Cambridge going forward you need the right leadership and that's why these election on May 4th are so important.

Consultation into proposed cuts to 'specialist' fertility treatments across Cambridgeshire

Plans to cut specialist fertility treatments across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are to be sent out for public consultation.

The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group says it's having to make tough decisions about funding due to financial pressures.

One idea is to stop routinely giving specialist services to most cases apart from two exceptions; patients undergoing cancer treatment and men who have a chronic viral infection.

"The CCG has to make some very difficult decisions about how to allocate our budget. It is a fixed budget and yet we have a growing demand for all types of healthcare services, as well as a significant financial deficit to clear. We are now in the position that we have to evaluate every service we commission. Specialist fertility services are expensive treatments and last year we spent over £1million on them. "

– Dr Gary Howsam, Clinical Chair & Chief Clinical Officer

The new policy would still allow for patients to be referred from their GP to their local hospital for investigation into their infertility.

But once a patient has completed their investigations, the proposed policy would no longer allow for patients requiring IVF treatments then to be referred from the local hospital to the specialist fertility services for treatments funded by the NHS, apart from the exceptions above.

In 2015/2016, 200 people accessed IVF services
