Patients to have direct say on infertility treatmentPatients will be given a direct influence on the direction of infertility treatment, it was announced on Sunday.

Infertility Network Scotland, an organisation of past and present patients, will be funded by the Scottish Government for three years to work with health boards on ensuring fairer access to treatment.

Talks will now begin between the government, health boards that refer patients and specialist NHS fertility centres on how the network can help address waiting times and local differences in access to treatment.

An expert advisory group will also be established this summer to consider an action plan on infertility services.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
