Egg and sperm donors could receive £800

23rd August 2010

The HFEA hopes that the higher payments would encourage more people to donate, as the UK currently does not have enough donors. "We want to review egg donation," Professor Lisa Jardine, the chair of the HFEA told the Sunday Times, "We are suggesting moving closer to the Spanish system."
