Our fertility experts and specialists
Our medical and scientific leaders are at the forefront of assisted reproduction. Delivering the best fertility care requires innovations, being at the leading edge of scientific advances and having high quality fertility specialists.
All of our doctors, nurses and embryologists are trained in our techniques by pioneers in the field of assisted reproduction. This ensures that we will always offer you the most cutting edge treatments and the highest standard of care. Our fertility consultants are at the heart of everything we do and we take pride in recruiting some of the top experts in the field. Our practice is based on medical and scientific expertise, which constantly informs our methods. Your treatment is led throughout by doctors, which differs from many other clinics, where care is often led by the nursing team. You can visit our Meet the Team section to view our Doctors’ profiles. We cannot guarantee that you will see the same consultant or nurse every visit. However, we ensure that all our consultants and nurses are highly experienced and you receive the best advice. In fact, it has been shown that involvement of more than one consultant in your clinical care can provide the best platform for governance and success.
