At its meeting earlier this week (7th November 2017), the Governing Body of the three Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Groups decided to keep existing policies covering fertility treatment in place.
This followed a public consultation exercise held between July and September this year and will mean that the current age limits for women and men will remain the same.
A spokesperson for the CCGs said, “We listened to the feedback from the consultation and its clear that we need to look further at any possible proposals to change fertility treatment criteria. The Governing Body agreed to review the overall approach to fertility commissioning during the overall planning process for 2018/19."
A consultation report will be made available soon.
