Transferring your NHS funding

Transferring your NHS funding

If you are eligible for NHS-funded IVF, but we do not have a contract with your local CCG, you may be able to transfer your funding to CREATE Fertility.

Different CCGs have varying policies with regards to transferring funding and they will make the decision as to whether you can have NHS-funded treatment with us.

Transferring your funding

Usually, you will need to have a strong clinical reason to transfer funding to CREATE Fertility and you will need to apply for a transfer before any treatment has started with the CCG's usual NHS provider.

Reasons to transfer your funding to us:

  • We have the necessary specialists or advanced techniques for your specific diagnosis compared to the CCGs local provider
  • The waiting list may be too long for you in your local area and with us you can start treatment immediately
  • It is more convenient to have treatment with us because you live closer to our clinic than the standard CCG provider

  • Individual funding request

    Contact your GP or NHS Fertility Clinic and ask to transfer your treatment to CREATE. An Individual Funding Request (IFR) will be submitted directly to your CCG on your behalf. It will need to include your reasons as to why it is best for you to have your treatment with CREATE Fertility.

  • Funding agreed

    If your funding request is accepted, your CCG will write to us directly to let us know and then you can start treatment.

  • Screening & consent

    We will get in contact with you with you as soon as possible to book a consultation and scan, ready to begin treatment with us.
