Cryopreservation

Cryopreservation is the process of freezing and storing sperm, oocytes and embryos so that they can potentially be used at a future date, typically in an attempt to achieve a pregnancy.

This policy sets out the commissioning position on the provision of cryopreservation for a patient about to undergo a medically necessary procedure or intervention which may permanently impair their future fertility.
