Free fertility treatment is to be reduced in Bury.
A public consultation has been underway in Bury since August to discuss plans which could see free fertility treatment limited. The borough's Clinical Commission Group says that it needs to make savings.
It now means that from October, any new applications from couples seeking IVF treatment will be capped to one funded cycle.
The decision to reduce provision in the town from the current offer of up to three funded cycles, to one, was made at this week’s meeting of NHS Bury Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) Governing Body (Board), and follows a six week consultation period.
The group says that moving to one funded cycle of IVF will save up to £170,000 every year.
We know that infertility is a very difficult issue for those affected by it and we have spent a great deal of time considering our position and gathering feedback before making a decision.
We are grateful to every single individual and to the groups that responded to our consultation, and whilst there were no significant areas flagged that the CCG had not already considered, what came through loud and clear was that there was little support to move to zero funded cycles.
Bringing the CCG in line with the majority of other areas, and in line with the views of our Clinical Cabinet, the Governing Body agreed to reduce provision of IVF to one funded cycle for eligible patients from October 2018.
The CCG say the change will only affect new referrals, and will not affect those couples that are already having an individual funding request referral considered, or have had funding agreed.
