Lower age limit removed for Assisted Conception Services

North East Hampshire and Farnham Clinical Commissioning Group has removed the lower age limit for referrals to Assisted Conception with immediate effect.

On Wednesday, November 13, it was agreed by the North East Hampshire and Farnham Clinical Commissioning Group Governing Body that the lower age limit was to be removed for all patients requiring referral for Assisted Conception Services (such as IVF). The recommendation to remove the lower age limit was made in order to ensure that the Clinical Commissioning Group complies with the Equality Act 2010 post transition from Primary Care Trusts.

In NHS North East Hampshire and Farnham CCG, there are currently two policies in place for patients requiring a referral for Assisted Conception Services. These policies are historic inherited policies from the Primary Care Trusts, with one for patients registered with a Surrey GP Practice and one for patients registered with a Hampshire GP Practice. The removal of the lower age limit refers to both Hampshire and Surrey policies. All other referral criteria remains.
