Costs of treatments and funding streams
Fertility treatment costs
As an NHS hospital, all of the consultations and tests that patients need to provide a diagnosis are free of charge in contrast to private clinics.
You may qualify for NHS funding for your treatment. This will depend on the criteria which apply in your area, and these are defined by the local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). It is important to be aware that each CCG sets their own criteria and some do not offer to fund fertility services at all. You should contact your GP to see if funding is available in your area and whether you are eligible.
The Birmingham Women’s Fertility Centre holds the CCG contracts to provide NHS funded IVF and ICSI treatments for Birmingham and the surrounding areas.
We will assess if you are eligible for NHS treatment when you are referred into Birmingham Women’s Fertility Centre.
If you are not eligible for NHS funding, your consultations and tests needed for your diagnosis will still be free of charge. However, you will need to self-fund your IVF or ICSI treatment when the time comes.
Our up-to-date list of charges is available below. Many of the treatment charges do not include the relevant medications and until you have a treatment plan it will not be possible to tell you the precise cost of treatment as the cost of drugs will depend on your individual treatment plan.
It is important to note that if you are funding the treatment yourself, you will be asked to pay at your consent signing appointment, prior to the start of your treatment.
Compensated egg sharing
Depending on your circumstances, you may also want to consider compensated egg-sharing (see our treatments page for more details).
