One of the leading centres in the UK
Barts and The London Centre for Reproductive Medicine is based at the renowned St Bartholomew’s Hospital (known as Barts), in the City of London near St Paul’s Cathedral. The centre is housed in a newly refurbished building, the Kenton & Lucas Wing, at Barts. It was fully refurbished in 2005 to provide state-of-the art surroundings for our patients and donors. We also have a satellite clinic at Norfolk and Norwich NHS Trust.
We treat patients from across London and further afield and offer treatment to both NHS and private clients.
Our success rates are consistently higher than the national average. In the last published HFEA Patients Guide, the centre had the highest success rate among UK NHS clinics and is one of two London hospitals with the lowest multiple birth rates (twins or more) in the capital. Are these stats correct?
Barts and The London Centre for Reproductive Medicine treats couples and also single women and lesbian couples for infertility. We recommend that women should be under 44 at the time of referral. Women above this age can be seen on an individual basis to discuss their fertility, although we would not automatically agree to treat.
If you are interested in receiving fertility treatment at our centre, please obtain a referral letter from your GP or consultant gynaecologist. Once we have received the referral letter, we will contact you by letter, enclosing an information booklet, costs (if necessary) and success rates.
We recognise that patients receiving fertility treatment require very special attention before, during and after their treatment. Our team of experts is dedicated to helping you through this difficult time and providing the best care to suit your individual needs.
Our centre is in the privileged position of being able to use a wide range of expertise which benefits all our patients. Our leading consultants are supported by a multidisciplinary team consisting of nurses, embryologists, ultrasonographers, administrative staff and counsellors. In addition, we are able to call on the services of other specialists as required.
All of our team are committed to providing the highest possible standards of care.
Anything else to add here about the specialists on the team?
Using research to develop cutting-edge treatments
As a large teaching and specialist hospital we conduct a wide variety of medical research to ensure that we provide the most advanced and successful treatments for our patients. Working closely with Barts and The London Queen Mary’s School of Medicine and Dentistry, our team of clinicians and scientists are at the forefront of research – investigating new therapies and novel approaches for the diagnosis, classification and treatment of fertility conditions.
Is this paragraph correct – do we research infertility?
We aim to ensure that patients are kept fully informed at each stage of their treatment. Critical to the quality of our service is teamwork; our patients experience a multidisciplinary and seamless approach – receiving medical treatment, high quality nursing care and counselling support if required.
