Information for Quality consultation

Today sees the launch of our six-week Information for Quality (IfQ) consultation - something we have been building up to since the beginning of the year. We want to improve the way HFEA communicates with clinics, patients, and donors and the consultation offers the chance for all stakeholders to comment on our plans in doing so.

From now until 12 November 2014 you can feedback on our proposals on ways to:

  • provide online patient feedback
  • simplify how we present success rates
  • provide information on donor availability

We are planning to redesign our clinic search tool, Choose a Fertility Clinic, and we would like your views on how we should present pregnancy rates in the future. We're planning to add new features such as patient feedback, donor conception waiting times and information about the cost of treatment. You can have your say on all these issues and more by taking part in the consultation.

To get involved all you need to do is complete our online survey. You can also find out more about IfQ by visiting the IfQ webpage.
