NHS Funding - Yorkshire and Humber

NHS funding for fertility treatment is limited for everyone and what is available varies from place to place with criteria set by each area's Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

The list below outlines specific criteria set for same sex female couples by each CCG in Yorkshire and the Humber Area. Couples will also need to meet general criteria set by each CCG.  The Infertility Network has published these details on their website here.

If your CCG has not set criteria for same sex couples you can contact them directly for clarification or ask for further advice from your GP. For more information and support contact Stonewall’s Information Service at info@stonewall.org.uk
