Commissioning Policy for the Provision of NHS Funded Gamete Retrieval and Cryopreservation of Gametes and Embryos for the Preservation of Fertility
This policy lays out the CCG commissioning intentions regarding the retrieval and storage of gametes for patients in certain clinical circumstances.
This policy sets out the criteria for access to secondary and tertiary level fertility services (intrauterine insemination (IUI), in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) and IVF with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI)) for the population covered by Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group. Access to fertility services is governed by the same principles as all other services, namely clinical effectiveness, cost effectiveness and the outcomes of the CCG’s Commissioning Needs Assessments.
