Patients who have accessed or are accessing fertility treatment in mid and south Essex are being invited to take part in a pre-consultation engagement by the Integrated Care Board (ICB) now responsible for commissioning in the area.
The Mid and South Essex ICB took over from the five Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) which were previously responsible for commissioning health services in the region on 1 July 2022. Access to some NHS services currently varies across the region as different CCGs had implemented different policies, which are now being reviewed to make them equal across mid and south Essex.
The new ICB wants to hear from patients who have previously accessed, or are currently accessing, fertility treatment as well as some other services including vasectomy and sterilisation as part of a review of NHS services. Patients can feedback via the ICB's online form.
