Wife claims fertility treatment is denied

By Health Correspondent Dave Morris

A Shropshire woman who desperately wants to have a child and is seeking fertility treatment from the NHS, claims she faces discrimination under a health service policy.
Janine Macallister, 27, of Newport, says she is denied treatment under the current fertility funding policy of NHS Telford & Wrekin because her husband has children from a previous relationship.
She has now decided to take her cause through the official complaints and appeals procedure of the trust.
In a letter to the trust’s director of commissioning, Mrs Macallister says she believes she has a “strong case of indirect discrimination “against the organisation.
She is prepared to “fight all the way” for treatment and even take her case to the Court of Human rights in Brussels if necessary.
Mrs Macallister claims the trust is classing she and her husband, Jason, as one, which she says is wrong.

Problem

“I am the one who has the problem, not my husband and I am the one in need of treatment, not my husband, “she said in her letter “. “ I would completely understand you denying us treatment if we already had a child together, which is not the case “.
“my husband has two children with a different woman which he hardly sees, and which don’t have anything to do with me. “
Mrs Macallister said today: “ I really do want a child and it’s making me unhappy that I can’t. It really is affecting our lives. “If I chose to leave my husband, and pick at random a man who didn’t have a child, then I would be treated. It makes me so upset and angry.
“We pay our taxes and this is the first time that we have needed special treatment from the NHS but we can’t get it.
In a statement NHS Telford & Wrekin said: “We are not able to comment on individual cases.
“However, we can confirm that the policy regarding fertility treatment is currently under review. We would like to assure Mrs Macallister that any correspondence will be responded to as soon as possible.

yes i seen it. never mind one bad in so many fab replies from you guys xx

Do you think she know how long the adoption process is and do you think she know you will not be having a newly born baby. by the time you are allowed to take it home it will already probably be a year old.

Anyway not letting it get me down she surely doesnt know what she is talking about and all other replies are so fab.

Thanks Scazkat much appriciated xx

Guess what just had a call from the Shropshire star and they are baffled about all the replies to the article on the web. I played very suprised lol!!! They are that pleased with the response that they are going to run a follow up in tomorrows paper!!

Plus there have been a couple of woman who are in simular situation in my area who have called the paper and left their details to be passed on to me to offer support.

I am so happy i did it now. Was a bit worried first everybody knowing my business, but am over the moon now!!!

I did one like this a couple of weeks ago - http://www.oxfordmail.co.uk/news/headlin…_IVF_treatment/

We got 56 comments in the end and it had a massive impact.

Hope your appeal goes well.

Marco comments


with global warming and the carbon cost of have children


there should be a ING in having!!

and his next paragraph

anything IQ test should be administered to those seeking infertility treatment, and if there is a very high enough chance that their offspring would benefit humanity then they should be given treatment.

that doesnt make sense either - very high enough???


he should do an IQ test lol!!!!
