Fears over rationing of IVF

An ITV News Anglia investigation has found some couples who need help starting a family are having their NHS treatment rationed.

The national recommendation is for three rounds of IVF - but couples in Milton Keynes and Northamptonshire are offered only one while in some other areas it is being cut to two.

Local NHS managers say they have to balance the national guidelines with the money available.

Kate Brian from Infertility Network UK said the impact would be "absolutely devastating" for couples.
