Petition The full cost of IVF treatment should be funded by the Government
Currently, only those with a combined household income of less than £34,000 who are under 40 years old get any financial help from the Government with IVF, but they still have to pay for the treatment including travel to the UK.
This can run into thousands of pounds. We pay social security and infertility is an illness, and can result to mental health issues for women trying to build a family with no success at all. There should be wider funding available for everyone in this position.
