To ask Her Majesty's Government what information Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority licensed centres hold regarding the provenance of donated gametes, in order to minimise risks of consanguinity when used in patient treatment and to ensure informed consent prior to any use in research.
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has advised that patients and donors registering at HFEA licensed centres must provide personal identifying information that is collected on registration forms, blank copies of which are available on the HFEA website at www.hfea.gov.uk.
All patients and donors must complete consent forms prior to embryos, created using their gametes, being used in treatment or in research. It is a condition of all HFEA treatment licences that centres keep such information as is necessary to facilitate the traceability of gametes and embryos.
