Hello everyone, we finally have a first appointment with the Homerton on our ongoing journey to become parents. IVF is the proposed way to go for us. I just have a couple of questions about the NHS funding.
Until now we didn't have to do anything, we got referred by the GP to the first clinic and they have us now referred to the Homerton. When or how do we find out if the NHS trust actually pays for us? We fall in all the eligibility criteria but I was just wondering if there is a point in time where they have to specifically approve the funding?
Also, what about the required medication for IVF, do we pay for that ourselves or is this also being paid for?
What is your experience?
