Couples should be given three free cycles of IVF to fight the "social disorder" of infertility, a leading expert has claimed.
Sam Abdalla, medical director of the Lister Fertility Clinic in London, said the NHS was failing to implement a 2004 NICE directive calling for free treatment.
"Infertility is not only a disease, it is also a social disorder with a profound effect on the individual, the family and wider society," Mr Abdalla said.
The doctor is offering 21 free cycles of IVF to mark the 21st birthday of the Lister Fertility Clinic, treatment at which has resulted in more than 10,000 births.
