please sign this petition to end the postcode lottery

http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/FUNDINGIVF/


Quoted

At the present time there is a postcode lottery throughout the UK regarding NHS funding for IVF. The NICE guideline 2004 states that couple should have 3 cycles of IVF to get the best success, it is now 4 years later and the majority of the UK is not bring in these guidelines that many couples need. Eastern England will from April be funding 3 cycles of IVF if you meet the criteria .

Lets stop this postcode lottery!

It would be interesting to see what happens if you chase it up.

I am going to start lobbying our MP's in Oxfordshire next week and once I have that sorted I want to go on to get people all over the country to do the same.

In Oxfordshire now the issue certainly is in the public arena with loads of local press coverage of our local campaign. Now we need to put the pressure on local MP's who in turn we need to pressure the goverment and the Department of Health.

It would be great to find people in West Hull and Hessle that could lobby their MP for us as he is the current Secretary of State for Health (Alan Johnson MP).

Keep up the good work Kar1

FUNDINGIVF - epetition response
We received a petition asking:

“We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to bring in the NICE guideline which states 3 cycles of IVF.”

Details of Petition:

“At the present time there is a postcode lottery throughout the UK regarding NHS funding for IVF. The NICE guideline 2004 states that couple should have 3 cycles of IVF to get the best success, it is now 4 years later and the majority of the UK is not bring in these guidelines that many couples need. Eastern England will from April be funding 3 cycles of IVF if you meet the criteria . Lets stop this postcode lottery!.”

· Read the petition
· Petitions homepage

Read the Government’s response
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) fertility guideline was published in February 2004. When NICE recommended the provision of up to three cycles of IVF for eligible patients, both NICE and Ministers recognised that this could not be implemented immediately. However, Ministers do expect the NHS to make steady progress towards the implementation of the guideline.

To help the NHS in England to move forward to more equitable provision, we have a programme of work underway to improve the way IVF services are provided. The Department of Health is funding the leading fertility patient support organisation, Infertility Network UK, to work with the NHS to identify and share best practice in the provision of IVF. It is important that Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) take account of the opinions of patients when assessing the need for fertility services.

Infertility Network UK is also developing social access criteria to help PCTs develop a standardised approach across the country for deciding which couples are provided with NHS treatment. The criteria are currently being discussed with the expert group on commissioning NHS infertility provision, which we established last year, and which is working on a commissioning guide for fertility services.

The Department of Health monitors IVF provision across England, and is currently seeking up-to-date information on provision in all PCTs.
