Discussion of different options for funding fertility treatment.
Bourn Hall provides both NHS IVF treatment and self-funded treatment. NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) recommends that three cycles of IVF provide the optimum level of treatment.
To help our patients gain the treatment they need – where it is not available from the NHS – Bourn Hall offers flexible payment options via Access Fertility.
We also have a number of programmes, such as egg sharing and sperm donation, where eligible couples are given free treatment.

He's four 🙂 I know I say this every year but I will never be able to thank you enough. we now know he's going to be our only miracle and that's fine with us. we are among the lucky people who gained from the NHS funded cycles before they were so cruelly removed. I hope someone somewhere can get this brought back in before it's too late for someone else who otherwise would not be able to afford the treatment needed. thank you X bit.ly/2U0GLHZ ...

"The business case didn’t make a huge amount of sense to us because it would end up costing more in the long run as people experienced more mental health issues and also people are going to go abroad for treatment," (This increases the chance of multiple premature births).
"So actually it really wasn't a huge saving when you look at the human impact of this. We will be pushing the CCG to reverse the move at the review in April, and we are looking for people to send us their feedback"
Bourn Hall holds the contract for NHS funded treatment across the east of England but as CEO Mike Macnamee commented none of those patients come from Cambridgeshire.
He said: "it’s a scandal that the NICE guidelines are not adopted fully throughout the UK, which would entitle patients to three cycles of IVF, and up to three frozen as well. If you follow the NICE guidelines you get singleton pregnancies which are much safer for the mother and baby."

So good to hear from Krystyna - one of patients that received Level 2 fertility care from our team in Norwich - this is treatment with medication such as clomid that can boost the chances of natural conception (ie not IVF).
Krstyna writes; "Thank you so much to the team at Norwich ( Wymondham) for helping us to have our lil lady..
"Alice Mary-Jane was born on Thursday 15th November at 9:42am weighing 7lb 9oz.
We had help via clomid and this helped to reset everything."
