Cut­ting IVF cy­cles is not the way to go

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

I read with much dis­ap­point­ment last week that health bosses are look­ing to cut the num­ber of IVF cy­cles for cou­ples try­ing to con­ceive.

While I have no per­sonal in­vest­ment in the process, I know there are plenty of peo­ple who have re­lied on it - grate­ful that they have had more than one chance to try and have a baby.

We all know the NHS is strug­gling for cash, and if we’re not go­ing to get the level of in­vest­ment it needs, they have to bal­ance the books some­how, but I just feel to limit these poor cou­ples’ chances of hav­ing a fam­ily is not the way to do it.

I’d be in­ter­ested to know how many read­ers of this news­pa­per are set to be af­fected by the pro­pos­als. Ash­ford Road, Maid­stone
