Gamete and embryo cyropreservation policy consultation

This will give more people the opportunity to have their sperm, eggs or embryos frozen for possible use at a later date, if they are about to have treatment which could cause permanent infertility.

This service, which is called cryopreservation, is already available on the NHS to many patients who are having cancer treatment, and it is proposed to extend the service to patients undergoing other procedures, including gender reassignment surgery or hormone therapy.
