The CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group), responsible for allocating funding for health services in B&NES, are having to make savings of £11.6 million in 2017/18 because of inadequate funding for a growing population.

 

One proposal is to limit access to IVF and stop vasectomy and sterilization services saving just £200,000

How?

IVF - They want to reduce the maximum age from 40 to 35, restrict funding to just one cycle, further restrictions that go against national guidelines.

Vasectomy/Sterilization – They want to end the funding completely.

 

Is there a new type of NHS being ushered in – shrunken, limited, a safety net for only the most severe cases?

The consultation period has been extended to 31st January

BANES CCG are currently consulting on some drastic changes to services. Only women between the ages of 23 and 35 will be eligible for IVF treatment, and they are removing funding for vasectomies and female sterilisations in all but exceptional circumstances.

It’s outrageous that the Tories have pushed the NHS to this point, and are putting many women in an incredibly difficult position. You can voice your views on the changes here

Consultation ends on 27th December, make sure you respond before then.
