About The Assisted Conception Unit at Jessop Wing
Located in the city's £24 million Jessop Wing, the purpose built Assisted Conception Unit is one of the most successful fully NHS managed centres of its kind in the country.
We provide a service that is led by four consultants with many years expertise in IVF treatment to ensure that you receive the highest quality service with continuity of care.
We offer the very latest assisted conception techniques. Our new laboratories were fully upgraded in 2005 and are equipped with the latest and most advanced technology available.
Our emphasis is on providing an individual pathway of care and treatment that suits your needs. Unlike some of larger scale clinics, we restrict the number of patients seen per month in order to maintain our ability to devote the necessary amount of time and care to each couple.
The quality of our service is reflected in the national livebirth data from IVF compiled and released by the HFEA. This is available at www.hfea.gov.uk. However we place equal emphasis on patient care. We have pioneered the use of GnRH antagonists and low dose FSH fertility drug treatment in the UK, which we believe to be the most 'patient friendly' approach to IVF. Our approach leads to a high chance of pregnancy, with a low risk of multiple pregnancy (the biggest risk factor in IVF treatment).
We are currently celebrating ten years of success and patient care.
