Change Infertility NHS/CCG Funding

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

England are the only country in Britain that doesn't offer IVF if one or both parents have a child. However due to funding it's based on which location of England you are if you get that funding or not, meaning the CCG make their own guidelines rather then the recommended guidelines from NICE.

I am trying to make funding available for at least 1 cycle of IVF for EVERY woman/family not due to where they live. However I do hope that 3 cycles of IVF are offered to women and families.

My Story is here:

NHS Trust eligibility: 

NHS trusts across England and local CCG policies. CCGs may have additional criteria you need to meet before you can have IVF on the NHS, such as: not having any children already, from both your current and any previous relationships
being a healthy weight
not smoking
falling into a certain age range (for example, some CCGs only fund treatment for women under 35)

NHS Trust in Wales:  IVF on the NHS is available for:(1) Couples where one of the partners does not have any living children (biological or adopted).(2) Single women or men who do not have any living children (biological or adopted).

NHS Trust in Scotland: Biological child:
Couples where one partner has no living biological child can access treatment as long as all other access criteria are met in full.

NHS Trust North Ireland: That said, unlike the other UK nations, couples who have children living with them (in any capacity) have equitable access to services.

Due to funding, and eligibility does this now take impact of our human rights? Do we really have as much human rights as we think we do?

Human rights: In the UK, human rights are protected by the Human Rights Act 1998. The Act gives effect to the human rights set out in the European Convention on Human Rights. Article 8 - the right to respect for your family and private life, your home and your correspondence is one the rights protected by the Human Rights Act.
