NHS GP Referral

NHS funding for IVF treatment may be available for patients who meet the specific criteria of their local clinical commissioning groups – CCG (previously PCTs). Each CCG has set criteria and will differ in terms of what level of treatment will be funded. Funding for assisted conception may not be available if either you or your partner already has children, if the female partner is over a certain age or has a BMI over 30.

Current waiting times

  • There is currently no waiting lists for NHS patients at CRGH
  • Treatment for patients whose CCG are contracted with us can start the process within less than 4 weeks of referral.


Number of cycles funded

  • This varies by CCG, but typically one to three treatment cycles will be funded on the NHS
  • Privately funded treatment will usually be deducted against any remaining NHS funded eligible cycles

If you would like further information about our eligibility criteria, please contact Sayrah Lola s.lola@nhs.net
