I would like to arrange to have treatment at your clinic once it is up and running. How do I get started?

The cost will be £400 for the initial tests and consultation (after a free online consultation) and then £3,500 which includes embryo freezing and 1 year storage (if the embryos are suitable for freezing)

We are aiming to open by the end of 2021 but we will announce through our mailing list and social media. Then you can book an initial appointment either emailing us directly or calling us.

Will I need to have a consultation before starting treatment? What will this include?

The first step before you embark on fertility treatment will be to have an online consultation after which if you wish to proceed we will arrange some tests, including a scan. At some point we will ask you to stop taking the pill so that we can do the ovarian stimulation.

When will you be opening and will there be a waiting list?

We are hoping to start offering a service by the end 2021, we rely on having an HFEA licence and the process for this is quite convoluted.

We will announce the opening of the service to our mailing list and through social media and then you can just call or email to book your first appointment.
