Fertility expertise at The Wolfson Fertility Centre
At the Wolfson Fertility Centre, we pride ourselves on our expert knowledge, fantastic facilities and excellent pregnancy rates. Our clinic was established by Professor, Lord Robert Winston in 1982, and is now one of the largest fertility services in the UK. We were the first service to have a baby born from IVF in London. We also have the longest established egg freezing unit in the UK, with over twenty years of success in this field.
Being part of an internationally renowned NHS Trust offers tremendous benefits to our patients. It means we can offer you world-class expert care alongside a seamless transfer to or support from other hospital departments if your situation requires it. We have offered successful fertility treatment to patients with complex medical conditions, HIV, cancer and those requiring surrogacy among others.
Our hospital location means that we also work closely with the department of endocrinology at Hammersmith Hospital, who can offer expert advice regarding concerns with hormone levels.
Our close links with Imperial College London means we use the latest technology and can offer you the chance to participate in clinical trials and research.
World-class fertility expertise
We are a highly ethical organisation and will never advise you to undertake any treatments that we don’t believe will give you the best possible chance of having a baby. We will only provide advice and treatments that are evidence-based and research-led, so you can be certain that you will be in safe hands. You will have one consultant throughout your treatment with us who is responsible for your care. All our consultants are internationally respected and fully accredited by the RCOG.
Our embryology team are HCPC registered and fully accredited to perform complex embryological techniques. As part of a major teaching hospital, the Wolfson Fertility Centre has been instrumental in training many of the embryologists now working in fertility practices across the UK.
Latest innovations in fertility
We are renowned for developing innovative fertility services. For example, we were pioneers in the development of a technique called pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD). PGD treatment is specifically for couples who carry an inherited genetic defect that could cause health risks to their children.
We are also one of the few centres in the country to have time-lapse incubators. These take photographs of the growing embryos every fifteen minutes, providing a wealth of information to help us to select the best embryos for implantation.
Safety & support
At The Wolfson Fertility Centre, we want to work in partnership with you to make sure your experience is as positive as possible. Your care will be consultant-led, meaning that your chosen consultant will be involved in making recommendations about your care every step of the way.
You will also be assigned a named nurse when you start your treatment with us, who will be on hand to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
The safety of your embryos is also paramount and we have a range of security measures in place to ensure their protection, including an electronic witnessing system that ensures we do not have any mix ups in the labs.
