Fertility Fairness (formerly NIAC)

Despite the updated NICE guideline recommending up to three cycles of treatment for anyone who fits the eligibility criteria, there is still a huge variation across the country in the provision of NHS fertility treatment. 

For more than 20 years, we have campaigned for people to have equal access, as appropriate, to a full range of NHS investigations and treatments for infertility and the campaign is working - NHS treatment is much more widely available now than a few years ago, but there is still lots to do and we won't stop until everyone who is eligible can access the treatment they need!

Fertility Fairness doesn't just lobby for fair access to treatment, but has also pushed for recognition of the psychological effects of infertility, which if left untreated, can cause unnecessary and long-lasting harm to a people’s mental and general wellbeing.  We know how unfair it is - help us to highlight that unfairness by writing to your MP or email us to find out what else you can do to help.

About Fertility Fairness (FF)

  • FF (formally the National Infertility Awareness Campaign) is an umbrella body which has the support of a number of organisations working in the field of infertility from professional bodies to patient support groups.
  • For more than 20 years FF has campaigned for people to have comprehensive and equal access to a full range of appropriate NHS investigations and treatments for infertility; this includes the right for eligible couples to access up to three full cycles of IVF treatment free on the NHS.
  • There is evidence that suggests the effects of infertility, both financially and emotionally, are devastating. Since its establishment, FF has pushed for recognition of the psychological effects of infertility, which if left untreated, can cause unnecessary and long-lasting harm to an individual’s mental and general wellbeing.
