Clinic offering support to parent hopefuls as NHS IVF funding ‘remains frozen’ in CCG

Cambridge IVF, part of Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH), is hosting open evenings for parent hopefuls after Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG froze NHS funding for IVF treatment in September 2017. The pricing includes PURE IVF at £2,5000, an all-inclusive fixed price treatment; most private clinics are apparently selling this at £5,000. There are other options such as multiple-cycle IVF, which women must meet a certain criteria. The open evenings provide the parent hopefuls with the information on the different types of treatment.

According to Cambridge Network, Cambridge IVF has a 34% success rate for women under 40-years-old, which is higher than the national average. The company reportedly has connections with Rosie Maternity and Addenbrooke’s Hospitals , who are also part of CUH. The newspaper reports that all fees Cambridge IVF generates is pumped back into the NHS.
