However, the national stakeholder organisation, Fertility Fairness, undertakes an annual survey using Freedom of Information requests directly from clinical commissioning groups (CCGs). Information collected for 2016/17 shows that 18 CCGs offer three cycles of in vitro fertilisation (IVF), in line with the current National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) fertility guidelines. Of the remaining CCGs that have not implemented the guidance in full 50 CCGs offer two cycles of IVF, 137 offer one cycle, and seven offer no routine service.</p><p> </p><p>The Government’s position that CCGs should be following the NICE fertility guidelines as part of their NHS services to local people.

star this property answer text <p>Clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) should have regard to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guideline on the assessment and treatment of people with fertility problems when commissioning services for which they are responsible. This includes the recommendation in the guideline that three cycles of in-vitro fertilisation be offered to qualifying couples where the woman is under the age of 40 and one cycle where the woman is between the ages of 40 and 42.</p><p> </p><p>The NICE guideline is evidence based best practice for clinicians but is not mandatory. The availability of National Health Service funded fertility treatment is matter for local determination.
