Update on proposed changes to *IVF and ICSI

Richmond CCG's Governing Body was due to discuss the future commissioning policy for IVF and ISCI at its governing body meeting on 23 May. However, as a result of the announcement of the general election on 18 April, we entered a period of purdah which ran until 8 June 2017.

The outcomes of consultation will be discussed at Richmond Clinical Commissioning Group's governing body meeting on Tuesday 18 July 2017 at 12.30-2.50pm in the Salon, York House, Twickenham. Members of the public are welcome to attend the meeting. ​

You can view the board papers here. For the discussion on the IVF and ICSI consultation please see attachment D.

We will publish a summary of the outcomes including any decisions taken, on our website, following the meeting.​

*In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) is a technique by which eggs are collected from a woman and fertilised with a man's sperm outside the body.

Intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICS) is a variation of IVF in which a single sperm is injected into an egg.
