Abstract

The vast majority of fertility treatments are carried out without any problems occurring but, as in any clinical setting, mistakes can happen. Most people understand there are risks associated with any kind of healthcare, but they also rightly expect healthcare professionals to learn from those mistakes.  

This annual report provides details of clinic incidents, allowing clinics to learn from each other and improve patient care.
