Share your views on our draft North Central London Fertility Policy

North Central London Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is seeking views on a draft single fertility policy for our boroughs – Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington.  

Earlier this year, the CCG undertook a review of the five legacy fertility policies still in use in our boroughs. This review produced a set of recommendations which have informed the development of a draft single policy. 

The draft policy represents a significant improvement for most of our population as it expands the provision of NHS-funded fertility treatment in a number of boroughs. If implemented, the policy would offer equitable provision of NHS-funded treatment across the five boroughs in North Central London.  

Having a single policy in place would offer residents and clinicians greater clarity and consistency on the eligibility, provision and funding of specialist fertility treatments. By offering equitable and consistent access to specialist fertility treatments, we envisage this would also improve patients’ experience.

Seeking views to inform the single Fertility Policy development 

We are keen to hear views on the draft Fertility Policy from residents, service users, clinicians, voluntary and community groups, fertility groups and others.  

Over the next 12 weeks (22 November 2021 – 13 February 2022), the CCG will collect and analyse the feedback people share with us on the draft Fertility Policy. The views shared will be carefully considered by the CCG as we finalise the single policy.  

We want to help people living in North Central London to understand how they can access advice about, and be referred into, specialist fertility services. Your feedback will help us ensure the policy is as clearly written as possible, and plan how we communicate with residents once the final policy is in place. 

There are a range of ways that people can contribute their views. Details on how to give your views are available.

If you have any questions, please email nclccg.fertility-development@nhs.net or telephone 020 3688 2038.
