Information for Quality: A new chapter for how we publish information

Over the last year we have worked closely with patients, donors, clinic staff and other stakeholders as part of our Information for Quality (IfQ) programme to transform the way we collect, use and publish information to benefit patients, the public and clinics.

At our January Authority meeting, we agreed several recommendations which will improve your experience of our website and provide new information on the Choose a Fertility Clinic tool such as patient feedback and information about clinics' donor gamete availability. Our public consultation late last year showed support for such changes.

We will be working on these projects over the coming months, and plan for a new version of Choose a Fertility Clinic and a new HFEA website later this year. We will keep you updated on progress.

You can find out more about the Authority's discussion around IfQ in our recent Authority papers.
