Fertility treatment: How far should we go?

07 Feb 2019 17:00 - 19:00

20 Cavendish Square, Marylebone, London, W1G ORN

FREE

In 1978, Louise Brown made history by being the first baby born after in vitro fertilisation (IVF).

In the forty years since, IVF has become an established method of treatment for infertility, yet debates around access continue. Jane Denton, Director of the Multiple Births Foundation, chairs a panel discussion exploring the introduction of IVF and concerns arising from it. Kay Elder gives a personal perspective from her role in the early years of the first IVF programme, while Jane Stewart, Chair of the British Fertility Society, explores the question: “Does everyone have the right to fertility treatment on the NHS?”

Doors open at 5pm. Talk starts at 5:30.
