What if there are exceptional circumstances that mean I require fertility treatment?

As with our current policy, patients who are not eligible for treatment may be considered on an individual basis where their GP or consultant believes exceptional circumstances exist that warrant deviation from the rule.

Individual cases will be reviewed at the CCG Exceptional Funding Panel upon receipt of a completed ‘individual funding request’ application form from the patient’s GP, Consultant or Clinician. Applications cannot be considered when submitted by patients themselves.

Exceptional circumstances will be considered on their own individual bases, but include diagnoses of absolute infertility that preclude natural conception e.g. azoospermia or bilateral fallopian tube blockage.
