Transgender man accuses NHS of discrimination after doctors refused to freeze his eggs

08 April 2019 – Telegraph

A transgender man has accused the NHS of discrimination after doctors refused to freeze his eggs for future fertility treatment.

Alex McCall was told by Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) in Newcastle and Brighton that they were unable to pay the fees.

Following a recent legal row with the Equality and Human Rights Commission, NHS England will reissue guidance to NHS clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), reminding them that they have responsibilities to commission fertility services like IVF and storage of eggs and sperm and therefore, under such policies, CCGs are already obliged to comply with the Equality Act.
