Financial costs associated with undergoing fertility preservation

NHS funding may be available, but the amount of funding and the criteria for treatment varies between Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and different regions.

NHS funding may not be available if either you or your partner already have children. If you are not eligible for NHS funded treatment, then you may self-fund treatment. Individual funding requests can be made to CCGs in exceptional circumstances.

Funding will be discussed during your consultation with your fertility care team. If NHS funding is available for fertility preservation, this does not guarantee that if or when you choose to use the frozen material to have a pregnancy that this will also be funded by the NHS.
