Publicly funded appointment

For a publicly funded appointment you will need your GP to refer you to the Northern Regional Fertility Service (NRFS) which will allocate you to one of the three clinics holding a public fertility contract.
To be seen for a publicly funded appointment, certain eligibility criteria must be met.

The following test results must be attached to a couple's referral:

  • Semen analysis
  • Antenatal screening bloods
  • A cervical smear taken within the last 12 months
  • HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C serology (male and female)
  • FSH levels on day 2-4 of a cycle (done within the last 6 months)
  • Progesterone level 6-8 days before a period
