Julian welcomes CCG decision to begin funding IVF in York

June 19, 2014

Julian has welcomed the Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group’s decision today to begin funding one free cycles of IVF treatment on the NHS.

Commenting, he said:

“I am absolutely delighted to hear that, after careful consideration, the Vale of York CCG have decided to provide one full cycle of IVF treatment free on the NHS. I must commend the CCG on making this momentous decision which will bring about an end to the deeply unsatisfactory period in which it was the only health authority in the country that would not offer any free IVF treatment whatsoever.

“Despite inheriting massive debts from the old Primary Care Trust and a national health funding formula which sadly still disadvantages York, the CCG have made fantastic headway in balancing the books and this is now beginning to show in the treatments they are able to offer.

“This is clearly a positive step in the right direction and a move towards a more level playing field, but there is still a long way to go. The National Institute for Clinical Excellence recommends that, regardless of where you live, you should be entitled to three full cycles of IVF treatment on the NHS. I will continue to campaign in the hope that this will be the case in York in the not too distant future.”
