PERFORMANCE: A report from the individual funding requests board show the number of IVF approvals is now half the number of rejections.

The report, which covers the work of the committee that decides on whether a treatment is to be funded by NHS North West London, said over 2012-13 so far there had been nine approvals for IVF and 18 refusals.

Some of the eight primary care trusts had previously offered more than one cycle of IVF but that has now been reconciled down to one across the cluster.
