Fertility Matters is back again now, and wanted to send congratulations to Professor Peter Braude who received an OBE in the New Year’s honors for services to reproductive medicine. Professor Braude is a very highly regarded expert in this field, and yet has always had time to listen to the patient perspective. He chaired the group set up to look at multiple births after IVF, which recognised that multiple birth is a huge health risk from fertility treatment and led to steps being taken to ensure that those who need IVF in order to conceive have the best chance of having a healthy baby.
Congratulations to Allan Pacey too – who has recently been appointed Professor. Professor Pacey is the former chair of the British Fertility Society and a sperm expert – you’ll probably have seen him on TV or quoted in the news whenever there’s a sperm-related story.
So congratulations to both Professors!
