After 40 year’s it’s time for #IVFGoldStandard for all across the UK. That means access to 3 full NHS IVF cycles for all eligible individuals under 40, including couples where one person has a child from a previous relationship. In Scotland, all eligible women under 40 can access this #IVFGoldStandard. The situation across the rest of the UK is radically different and deeply unfair.
Help us create an IVF Thunderclap to campaign for equitable access to NHS fertility treatment. Let’s speak together and we can make change happen.
Our #IVFGoldStandard Thunderclap message is #IVFis40 time for #IVFGoldStandard 3 NHS IVF cycles and access for couples where one partner has no biological child
The Thunderclap link is at
It will go live 60 days before NFAW.

Did you know:
The majority of people with fertility problems – 60 per cent – will pay for their own treatment. Sadly, it is a myth that if you need medical help to conceive, NHS services will be available.
In England there is a postcode lottery: whether you will be able to access NHS fertility services depends on where you live: five local clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) do not offer any NHS IVF (2.4 per cent); 61.2% offer just 1 cycle; 23.4 provide 2 IVF cycles and just 12.9 per cent offer 3 NHS cycles. Only ten per cent of England’s CCGs enable access to couples where one person has a child from a previous relationship.
In Wales, all eligible women under 40 are able to access 2 full IVF cycles, including couples where one person has a child from a previous relationship. In Northern Ireland, eligible women under 40 can access just one partial IVF cycle, including couples where one person has a child from a previous relationship.
