This is the sixth in a series of films documenting the recent event 'Frozen Fertility: The Challenges of Storing Eggs, Sperm and Embryos', produced by the Progress Educational Trust (PET) in partnership with the Scottish Government.
The film features a panel discussion, including audience questions and comments, chaired by Professor Allan Pacey (Trustee at PET and Head of Oncology and Metabolism at the University of Sheffield).
The panel speakers are:
- Dr Melanie Davies, chair of Fertility Preservation UK
- Sharon Jones, patient who has frozen her eggs
- Rachel Cutting, director of compliance and information at the HFEA
- James Lawford Davies, partner at Hill Dickinson
If you are interested in this topic, please consider signing and sharing PET's #ExtendTheLimit petition, calling for an extension to the 10-year storage limit for eggs frozen for non-medical reasons.
