Postcodes can make you Pregnant

Postby Michelle » Sun Oct 20, 2002 2:53 pm

In the Sunday Times Magazine today there is a really interesting article on the ivf postcode lottery which is definitely worth reading . It is all about how unfair it is that only 15% of UK Fertility centres cover IVF treatment on the NHS. They also say how you shouldn't choose a clinic based on the success rate league tables as these are dependant on many factors - ie. age, weight, complications.
Worth a read if you can get hold of it.

just finished reading the article, and we found it very interesting.
especially about liverpool womens hosp, as we are there for our first appt on weds afternoon.
trust us to end up at the most expensive place for ivf, as we are having to go as private and up to now are only looking at being able to afford the one go...
might have to think about moving to sheffield lol
bye for now
