Fertility policies review

North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group (NCL CCG) plans and pays for a wide range of health and care services across Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington. The NCL CCG formed in April 2020, bringing together the CCGs of the five boroughs.

Our current Fertility Policies were developed a number of years ago by the CCG in each borough, and there are some variations between the five policies. Now we have formed one NCL CCG, we have commenced work to develop one new fertility policy for Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington. This will be done in two stages:

  1. The first stage is the NCL CCG Fertilities Policy Review. No decisions will be taken at this stage, but a set of recommendations will be developed.
  2. The second stage will be the development of the policy. The recommendations from the Review will inform the final policy.

We are now seeking your views.

You can read the existing Fertility Policies in our Document Library and find out more about this Review in our Leaflet.
