The NHS offers Top-ups...

So - the NHS is considering adopting mobile phone operatoresque payment plans. Top-up payments for your NHS care no less! No word about whether this will effect IVF provision in North Yorkshire yet - and we won't be holding out any hope that it will have any effect any time soon.

In fact, several weeks ago, we took the liberty of asking our GP whether any of the drugs would be available to us via the NHS (our own little form of Top-up payments). But of course they are not. Not only is IVF treatment not available to the vast majority of residents in North Yorkshire, but none of the drugs that make up any the treatment are available either. Because of our postcode.
