The HFEA is here to stay

The Department of Health has recently announced that the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) will continue to regulate fertility treatment at UK licensed fertility clinics and research on human embryos in the UK.

The Department of Health has commissioned an independent review to look at ways the HFEA can cut costs. The review will report to the Government by April 2013.

It is excellent news that the HFEA will not be abolished.  It has for many years lead the world in best practice for the regulation of assisted conception, including IVF and human embryo research.  It’s work safeguards standards of fertility treatment for patients across the UK and provides help and support to professionals and patients alike.
