The NHS wants to hear your views on fertility treatment. National guidance on the assisted conception services has been reviewed nationally and NHS Medway Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is keen to hear what local people think. The survey, which covers Kent, Medway and Sussex, will run until 12 August.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has recently reviewed its clinical guidance on fertility, which was last published in 2004. As a result, CCGs need to review decisions about how best to meet the assisted conception needs of people across the local area. As part of the review, CCGs will consider the new NICE recommendations, local capacity and resources, population needs and the views and experiences of local clinicians and patients.

The survey asks respondents for their views on:
• treatment referral
• options for same-sex couples, people with physical disabilities or psychosexual problems, and
• fertility preservation for patients undergoing treatments which may affect their future chance of conception, such as chemotherapy.

The questionnaire is open to people across Kent, Medway and Sussex. To take part in the survey, visit: http://www.medwayccg.nhs.uk. The questionnaire is available until 12 August 2013.
