Deborah researched and reported an investigation into the evidence for ‘add-on’ treatments offered to patients seeking fertility treatment in the UK. The programme used data journalism combined with undercover reporting to explore what is offered by different clinics and what they claim so-called ‘add-on’ treatments do. The investigation received widespread coverage in the national and international media.
