Swansea clinic director's IVF treatment delays anger


A fertility expert claims women seeking IVF treatment are suffering delays because the Welsh government stopped funding for a private clinic.

Patients are waiting 18 months for the NHS service at Cardiff's University Hospital of Wales, known as IVF Wales.

But the Welsh government says it is supporting work to build more capacity for IVF services in the NHS in Wales.

BBC Radio Wales' Oliver Hides asked Peter Bowen-Simpkins, medical director of the private Swansea-based London Women's clinic in Wales which has lost its contract, if he was simply angry about the loss of business.
