To mark National Infertility Day 2006, the Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Infertility, Dari Taylor MP, has tabled an Early Day Motion, or EDM.

An EDM allows MPs to put on record their opinion on a subject and is a kind of petition that other MPs can sign to show their support for it. The National Infertility Awareness Campaign (NIAC) would like the EDM to generate as much support as possible from MPs, to raise awareness of the needs of infertility patients, including full and fair access to NHS funded treatment.

Title: National Infertility Day 2006
Number: 2308
That this House welcomes National Infertility Day on Saturday 10th June 2006; notes that around one in seven couples in the UK are affected by this disease, which can cause profound psychological and emotional strain; deplores the fact that huge inequalities in access to NHS treatment exist despite the 2004 National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) clinical guideline on fertility; congratulates Infertility Network UK, ACeBabes and all associated for organising the largest one-day conference ever hosted by infertility patient associations; praises the work of the National Infertility Awareness Campaign in highlighting the need for greater equity in the provision of NHS-funded treatment; and calls for full implementation of the NICE clinical guideline to ensure that all couples receive equal access to infertility treatment, regardless of where they live.
Thank you for your support Clare Brown
