NICE Clinical Practice
Has the couple gone through the primary and secondary care sub-fertility pathways appropriate to
them before IVF is considered?                                                                                      No = excluded (summary) (full guideline)

Does the couple have a diagnosed cause of absolute permanent infertility (which precludes any                       No = excluded
possibility of natural conception) of > 1 yr duration? If so, please provide specific details.
(Same sex couple or single person: 10 failed insemination cycles or diagnosed fertility problem )

Age of woman at time of cycle starting

Has the patient received more than 2 previous cycles of IVF or ICSI, whether NHS or privately                       Yes = excluded

Women in same sex couples or a woman not in a partnership
Is the woman demonstrably sub-fertile?                                                                              No = excluded

(10 unsuccessful cycles of IUI will be accepted as evidence of unexplained infertility)

If the woman is demonstrably sub-fertile, has the possibility of the other partner receiving treatment              No = excluded
before proceeding to interventions been discussed?

(NHS funding is not available for insemination facilities (IUI with donor sperm) for fertile women
who are single or part of a same sex partnership).

Does either partner have a living child (including adopted) from their relationship, or from any                    Yes = excluded
previous relationship?

Has either partner been sterilised?                                                                                 Yes= excluded

HFEA Code of Ethics
Is there any reason to think this couple will not conform to the HFEA Code of Ethics? This includes       Yes = excluded
consideration of ‘welfare of the child which may be born’.


I confirm that all the above access criteria have been met and this couple is therefore eligible for NHS funded IVF
