People in the UK have a long history of charitable and altruistic giving, whether to individual causes or blood and organ donation. Altruistic egg donors help couples who cannot have their own children to start a family.

An egg donor needs to visit hospital 4-6 times over a two-week period for 30-minute long appointments. When the eggs are collected a whole day is needed at short notice.

We would value your opinion on how employers and line managers should respond to a request for time out to attend hospital appointments.
