North Central London Integrated Care Board (NCL ICB) states that anyone living in Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey or Islington, who is concerned about their ability to get pregnant and meets certain criteria, can expect to benefit from: 

  • fairer access to specialist fertility treatments across all five boroughs  
  • greater clarity and consistency about which specialist fertility treatments are NHS-funded in north central London and who is eligible  
  • an increased number of in vitro fertilisation (IVF) cycles available to some eligible people

If you are already undergoing, or have already been referred for, NHS-funded fertility treatment, you will not be disadvantaged by the new policy.
