As part of the first-year commitments in the Women’s Health Strategy, we published our in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) transparency tool on GOV.UK in July 2023. This tool compiles published integrated care board policies on their local fertility treatment offer, to inform patients, to keep track nationally of implementation progress, and to highlight poor performers.
