 Refined Rating System for IVF Clinics Mooted

The rating system for fertility clinics in UK will undergo a major revamp with the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) revealing that it will now be displaying the "predicted chance" of a live birth occurring at a specific clinic.

Until now, the HFEA website only displayed the recorded live birth data. However this statistic is proving to be misleading for patients with the new system expected to provide a more transparent picture of successes at fertility clinics.

According to HFEA, the new Choose a Fertility Clinic website will provide future patients with data such as age, diagnosis and the length of infertility among patients treated at a specific clinic as well as how the clinic's success ratio compares with the national average.

Stating that the revamped ratings is a major step forward in providing exact data for patients Professor Lisa Jardine, chair of the HFEA said, "Fertility treatment is big business in the UK. People can spend thousands of pounds in the hope of having a baby. It is only right that they have as much information as possible to help them make a choice about where they go for their treatment."
