Sally Cheshire CBE has been reappointed as HFEA Chair until 2021
We are pleased to announce that Sally Cheshire’s term as Chair of the Authority has been extended until March 2021.
Commenting on her reappointment, Sally said "I am delighted to be able to serve as Chair of the HFEA for another year. We have made significant progress during my tenure on patient care and treatment, from licensing world firsts like mitochondrial donation and ground-breaking gene editing research, to encouraging better clinic leadership and regulating the day-to-day clinical and emotional journey patients face as they try to have a much-wanted family.
"This is an exciting time for the HFEA as we approach our 30th anniversary, and we’re embarking on an ambitious new corporate strategy from April that will help to shape the future of fertility care and treatment in the UK. We will work closely with clinics and the wider sector to be clearer for patients on what really works in treatment. And we will continue to meet the challenge of providing reliable, unbiased patient information, whether that is about the quality of patient care, the costs of treatment or the efficacy of unproven add-ons our patients are increasingly being offered. The very best patient care will always be at the heart of what we do at the HFEA and I am delighted to be able to continue to serve as Chair."
