Numerous counts of misconduct and serious concerns about the growing corporatisation of the state’s fertility industry have been exposed in a government report released this week.

In one case, a whistleblower — referred to as "Charlie" — said a woman was told she had a good chance of success even though the doctor knew the implanted embryo had not survived.
