Treatment for infertile couples likely to be cut

IVF treatment in Peterborough and Cambridgeshire is set to be cut despite overwhelming opposition to the plans.

The specialist fertility service is to be removed by the city and county`s Clinical Commissioning Group with two exceptions until at least April 2019 despite more than 80 per cent of respondents to a public consultation opposing it.

Patients with cancer or another disease which is likely to make them infertile or if they have a chronic viral infection will still get the treatment.

Officials say the move will save 700 thousand pounds a year.
