News: Watchdog issues new consumer rights guidance to warn IVF clinics

27 June 2021 by Michaela Chen

Newly released guidance from the UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), would allow couples to initiate legal proceedings against IVF clinics that have falsely guaranteed their success rates.

The guidance, drawn up with the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA), sets out consumer law rights for those considering/undergoing fertility treatments. The document sets out the legal obligations of clinics to the consumers, and specifically requires that: 'Clinics should not be advertising misleadingly low headline prices to attract patients.' Further, clinics cannot 'cherry-pick' their success rates by using a particularly good year rather than the most recent one or selectively sampling patients who had better results. If a clinic breaches any legal guidelines in promoting their services, then patients may seek compensation through legal proceedings.
