We are giving a three-year project grant to Infertility Network UK to help primary care trusts share best practice in the provision of fertility services and engage with fertility patients in the planning and prioritisation of services. In the current year, the project funding is £21,000, increasing to £25,000 in 2007-08 and 2008-09. This is in addition to three-year core funding of £30,000 a year.
Once Infertility Network UK has completed an analysis of current provision, we will discuss taking the initial findings forward with including making the results of this work publicly available. As the project progresses, they will liaise with primary care trusts to discuss approaches to the provision of fertility services and the dissemination of good practice.
