Most patients will require a referral from their GP or consultant specialist whether NHS or self-funding.

We accept self-referrals from patients who have undergone IVF/ICSI elsewhere or have a confirmed need for IVF or ICSI. Please arrange for a referral letter from your specialist along with notes from previous IVF/ICSI.

Once we receive your referral letter, we would expect to offer you an appointment for an initial consultation thereafter.

The timescale for starting treatment will depend on your treatment requirements, but can usually proceed once any additional investigations are completed.
