Should the NHS stop funding IVF treatment?Funding for IVF should be the same across the country as at the moment some health authorities allow 1 cycle some 2 & Scotland 3 cycles. The yearning for a child & then failed treatments can cause so much heartache for a couple ( maybe costing the NHS more money as they may need counselling & possibly medication for any resulting depression). The people who object probably have children of their own. I have found that most people do not understand this all consuming need for a family. I have known people who have had two treatments on the NHS & then have gone on to get into debt to pay privately, which is extremely expensive. Some people also make insensitive remarks & cant understand why couples with infertility problems find it difficult to be around couples with babies ( even good friends) . Yes serious health issues such as cancer should take priority. We all should pay more taxes to help pay for our great NHS.
