People living in Barking, Havering and Redbridge will now be able to receive NHS-funded IVF treatment from a hospital trust closer to home.
From October 15, Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT) will offer IVF cycles with a comparable or higher pregnancy success rate than the national average through their partnership with Guy's and St Thomas's Assisted Conception Unit.
The unit has a 40per cent success rate and, overall, results compare favourably with national data.
This service has been available for people who self-fund for more than two years and will complement the gynaecological sub-fertility services that BHRUT currently offers to people living in the three boroughs.
"The extension of the IVF service to include BHRUT as a provider will enable local people to receive care closer to home, and there will be continuity of care for those couples who have already been referred to BHRUT for sub-fertility investigations," a spokesman for the trust said.
