Fertility unit

Our aim is to try to achieve a pregnancy for as many couples as possible. We also offer support to unsuccessful couples going through to the next stage, i.e. attempting IVF, adoption, or starting to come to terms with childlessness.

Both NHS and private patients are seen in the unit, which is open 7 days a week.


  • Semen analysis – fertility & post vasectomy
  • follicle tracking
  • post coital testing
  • intrauterine insemination
  • implication counselling
  • satellite IVF service

Referrals are usually from GPs or consultants within the Trust.

IVF patients are reminded to bring a completed questionnaire to their first appointment.
