Why do we need research?
Science and technology is always changing and improving outcomes; think about how much better the iPad is compared to a type writer or how many people now survive cancer
But we need to make sure the changes we make are clinically effective and safe
At Leicester Fertility Centre are proud to offer our patients the opportunity to advance science and technology by taking part in research and clinical audit
How can I get involved?
Before you start treatment you are required to sign an HFEA consent to disclosure form (CD). This will ask you about research
When you sign your HFEA MT or WT consent forms the nurse/ consultant will ask you if you’d like to be approached about research
This doesn’t mean you will be involved in research, only that we can talk to you about it
We will then discuss any research you maybe eligible to take part in. You can say yes or no to that research
Saying no does not affect your treatment
