Leicestershire & Northamptonshire patients can now choose to have their funded IVF cycles at NURTURE

July 2, 2008

As from April 1st 2008, all patients living in the Leicestershire and Northamptonshire area can choose where to have their funded IVF treatment. Patients will no longer be restricted to one provider or have to wait to start treatment as long as they meet set funding *criteria.

This will bring Leicestershire and Northamptonshire in line with patients living in Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire all of whom have freedom of choice.

Patients wishing to have their treatment at NURTURE will need to ask their GP for a referral letter to be sent to Nurture Fertility Clinic, Nottingham. 

Over the past 12 months there has been a dramatic increase in the number of patients choosing NURTURE to have their funded IVF treatment. NURTURE continues to have the highest success rates in the Midlands. 

Mr James Hopkisson NURTURE's clinical director explains;

"I am delighted that Leicestershire and Northamptonshire patients now have freedom of choice and can now benefit from our excellent results; I look forward to welcoming them to NURTURE"
