A finding by Pulse, which is a health magazine, reveals that one in five local Primary Care Trusts informed that they had reduced the count of IVF procedures, which they had been funding over the past three years time.
Women, in a few regions, are not being offered an access to the treatment on the whole whereas some are facing new constraints, which as per the nation guiding principles, is unlawful.
Pulse also informed that a few trusts had completely frozen their financial support to IVF.
The economic downturn has been blamed as the main suspect of the looming cuts and reductions made as said by the funding bosses however campaigners stated that a lot of infertile couples were also not being given an access to which they have the legal right.
As per guidance from the National Institute for Health and Clinical excellence, GPs are recommended that they should offer those women, who are aged less than 40, almost three cycles of IVF on the NHS.
But quite a number of trusts have in the recent times asked family docs to reduce the number of cycles that they offer from four to two or even one, in some cases.
