Compensation for egg donors is set to triple
The UK's fertility watchdog has agreed to triple the compensation given to women who donate eggs to help infertile couples to have a child.
Donors currently receive up to £250 to cover expenses and lost earnings.
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority has decided to pay a one-off fee of £750 per course of donation.
Experts believe this will encourage more women to donate, but critics warn it may create financial incentives for what can be a risky procedure.
