Fertility services in Bedfordshire are at at serious risk of being decommissioned altogether.
Groups called CCGs commission NHS fertility services and the Bedfordshire CCG is proposing to drop their already limited IVF provision from 1 cycle to none. This will make Bedfordshire CCG one of only four groups in the entire country not to offer any IVF treatment. Fertility Fairness and Infertility Network UK are campaigning hard to prevent these cuts, but we need patients to write to the CCG themselves.
Bedfordshire CCG is consulting on dropping their IVF provision and patients can make a crucial difference by responding to this consultation. You can find the consultation here. Patients can also help by writing to their local MP to intervene. You can find all the relevant contact details below:
