We have just been advised that, as of today, North Yorkshire and York PCT will fund one cycle of IVF for all eligible couples. Not that this should really be a reason to celebrate - they should NEVER have withdrawn this essential medical procedure which is recommended by NICE.

Let's just hope that the (granted essential) Government-led squeeze on spending doesn't give them an excuse to withdraw it again any time soon - it shouldn't because the Government has promised to ring-fence NHS spending. But we have good reason, given what has gone on in the past, not to hold out too much hope here in North Yorkshire.

So - fingers crossed for all you lucky couples out there in North Yorkshire who finally have an opportunity to try for a family and let's hope you are all successful!

If anyone would like any further details, they can call the PCT or call Sue Redshaw directly on 07786 250721
