IVF Waiting Times

Waiting Times

NHS National Services Scotland ISD Scotland & NHS National Services Scotland


The Scottish Government has set a target for the NHS in Scotland that eligible patients will commence IVF treatment within 12 months by 31 March 2015. This will ensure equitable access to IVF services across Scotland.

In March 2016 the National Infertility Group published a report with recommendations on criteria for access to treatment for IVF.

ISD and the Scottish Government are currently working with NHS Boards to develop information for this target.

Further Information

More information on the IVF HEAT target is available on the Scottish Government Scotland Performs website.
