The evidence reviews and recommendations of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) fertility guidance confirm that fertility problems can be managed cost effectively. Where NICE fertility guidance is not followed and an incomplete cycle of in vitro fertilisation, as defined by the NICE guidance, is offered this reduces the effectiveness, and thereby the value for money of the treatment.
