Fertility problems: assessment and treatment­cg156/chapter/Recommendations

NICE lists the treatment that should be available to those who may need help to conceive.

But in reality, decisions about what is on offer are made locally, and the treatment that you can access will depend on where you live.

Fertility Fairness

The Fertility Fairness website gives the latest information on the provision of IVF services across England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

This is a useful guide as to what may be available, but you should check with your local Health Board or Clinical Commissioning Group.

Things can change rapidly and in some areas access to treatment may be further rationed by different rules about who is eligible for treatment.
