The Department undertook an internal policy review on the variation in access to National Health Service fertility services, which was completed in 2021. The results of this internal review will inform future policy. We will set out our initial ambitions in the Women’s Health Strategy, due to be published shortly.

We expect local NHS commissioning bodies to commission fertility services in line with National Institute for Health and Care Excellence’s guidelines, to ensure there is equitable access in England.
