Closed 20 Oct 2019

Opened 9 Sep 2019

Feedback updated 30 Jun 2020

We asked

The CCG asked for views from local people, health and care professionals, VCSE and other local interested parties on proposals to review our current policy on commissioning In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) services.

You said

Over 400 people responded to the consultation. 

People wanted more information on how changes may impact on other health and care services. 

It was also highlighted that some parts of the consultation process required a review.

We did

The CCG reviewed and reflected on the feedback and reports from local partners and it is clear that we need to stop and thoroughly review the consultation process we have undertaken.

We would like to thank everyone across Stockport who has given their views and assure them that we will work with Healthwatch to agree the information and consultation process going forward, learning the lessons.

Results updated 5 Feb 2020

A challenge from Heatlhwatch Stockport was submitted to NHS Stockport CCG on the last day of the consultation. 

Whilst these concerns are considered this consultation has been halted.


NHS Stockport Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is seeking views from patients registered with a Stockport GP practice, Stockport health care professionals and other local interested parties on proposals to review our current policy on commissioning In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) services.
