My friend has just messaged me and said that her friend who works for the NHS has told her that the NHS have announced today that they will now fund THREE cycles of IVF - where ever you live!!! Does anybody know anything about this? ?( Sounds a bit to good to be true to me mmmmmm!

I've heard this too.
It was on the front cover of the local paper last week (EDP).
I've yet to hear it from the clinic yet, but watch this space.

RE: IVF Funding

Haven't seen anything today, but here's a link to a similar report from last week:

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/life_an…icle4583272.ece

I don;t know, but I'm guessing that the 3 cycles are a guideline rather than a must and that it will still be up to individual PCTs?
I live in an area that funds 3 cycles, but the knock-on effect seems to be that the waiting list is longer (3 years here).

edited to say that it does seem to be just the East of England rather than a national decision to follow the guidelines.

I wonder if there will be a sudden influx of new residents to the East of England then? :teehee:
