Nope, that's still not right, just takes you to the number 10 page but says there isn't a petition for this, have done a search too :sadface:

Mind you, there ARE lots of similar ones, I know I have signed one in the past.

the onlyone that comes up in that link is when you select show all petitions, it eventually shows you a petition for all couples to get 3 free shots at ivf.

sorry not too easy, but i will sign up if i get the right one. ivf/icsi should be made cheaper. i had to find 4 grand the first time and 4 and a half grand the last time. not easy on a low income.

Having been offered no financial support for IVF I believe it's a very unfair system. We all pay our taxes don't we? Anyway, I have sent the link to friends. BUT, I wanted to check that it works ok. I have gone through the process and signed up, but if I go into the main page it still only says there are 14 signatures and one of them is not mine!! If I am being stupid and the people on the page are signatories and my name is elsewhere, I'll blame it on the stress of repeated IVFs.heheheh. Just wanted to check it works as this is so important.

I would imagine that the reason why the petition has not had many responses is because the cost of IVF, which is what the petition is for, is not down to the government, the prices are charged by private clinics.

The only thing that the government can change is what the NHS offers, and there are many petitions about this, the one below is just one I know of and has over 700 signatures
