Why have we drafted a single Fertility Policy?
In North Central London there are currently five fertility policies in place – one each for Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington. This is because, before the formation of the North Central London CCG in April 2020, each CCG had its own policy. There are some variations between the five policies that, now we are one CCG, we want to eliminate by developing a new, single draft policy. The CCG recognises what an important issue access to fertility treatment is for some of our residents, and have  followed a robust approach to developing a single NCL Fertility Policy.

Stage 1 – Fertility Policies Review (now completed)
This stage included understanding the latest national guidance and best practice and seeking views from stakeholders (including the public, service users, primary care, secondary care and specialist clinicians). A set of recommendations were developed, which informed production of a draft single NCL fertility policy. You can view the Recommendations Report and Engagement Report by clicking on the links at the bottom of this screen

Stage 2 – Single Fertility Policy Development (now open) 
We are now undertaking the second stage – the development of the new single Fertility Policy for North Central London. The draft policy is now available and can be accessed at the bottom of this page. You will also find below a glossary of terms which we hope you find useful.

We are keen to hear your views on the draft policy and invite you to complete the survey by following the link at the bottom of this page.

You can find other ways to share your views on our website https://northcentrallondonccg.nhs.uk/fertilitypolicies/.

The views you share will be carefully considered by the CCG as we finalise the single Fertility Policy, and how we promote the policy when it is approved.

You can view below a comparison table showing the draft NCL policy, national guidance and current policies.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Yours faithfully
