Fertility treatment: How far should it go?

7 Feb 2019 20 Cavendish Square, Marylebone, London, UK

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.


The venue is fully wheelchair accessible. There is a hearing loop in the lecture room. We can offer large print copies of presentations if requested at least a week before the event. Assistance dogs are welcome.
