S5W-15132: Miles Briggs (Lothian)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 7 March 2018

To ask the Scottish Government how many couples have used a third cycle of IVF since April 2017, broken down by NHS board.

Answered by: Aileen Campbell 20 March 2018

Information on how many couples have used a third cycle of IVF since April 2017 is not held centrally. However, Scottish Government officials regularly discuss the impact of this change with the 4 Centres providing NHS IVF.

The Scottish Government has had initial discussions with Information Services Division around the steps needed to collect this information within the confines of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act.
