Where can I find fertility treatment in London, Northern England and Wales?
Established in 1985 in Harley Street, London, and with regional clinics in Darlington, Cardiff and Swansea, The London Women's Clinic
(LWC) was a pioneer of many of the techniques now routinely used to help couples and individuals overcome difficulties with conceiving a child. With highly experienced consultants and nursing staff, and the most up-to-date facilities and techniques, they are able to offer expert diagnosis and treatment of fertility problems in a caring and individual-focused way.
Ethical and affordable fertility treatment
The London Women's Clinic is committed to providing the
highest quality fertility treatment at prices that are transparent and
affordable. A full list of prices
is available on their website and the price quoted at the intial
consultation is valid for three months. They offer a number of

Good IVF success rates in London, Northern England and Wales
Members of the LWC team were part of the exciting wave
of embryological research in Cambridge that resulted in the first IVF
baby, Louise Brown, being born. Professor Robert Edwards was himself
Scientific Director of LWC for many years and the current Medical
Director, Kamal Ahuja, gained a PhD at Cambridge under his supervision.
It is against this background of expertise that LWC enjoys a good success rate for IVF treatment.
Using the latest research that demonstrates that success
rates for IVF can be higher if treatment is undertaken as a course
instead of a as one-off attempt, LWC have introduced a three-cycle
package, offering three treatment cycles for the price of two. As well
as being an economic option, this package is designed to reduce the
stress and expectation that taking single treatment cycles one at a time
can produce, and has resulted in a higher 'cumulative' success rate
compared to single-cycle treatment.

Egg-sharing at The London Women’s Clinic
Pioneered at the LWC, egg-sharing enables women who are unable to produce their own eggs and women who would like IVF treatment but find it unaffordable, to help each other. IVF treatment is provided free to any woman who is happy to donate some of her eggs to a woman who cannot produce her own. Success rates at the LMC are high for both the women who donate their eggs and those who receive them.
The London Egg Bank
The London Egg Bank is an egg donor clinic based in central London. Opened in 2013 by the London Women’s Clinic, the UK’s first egg bank aims to encourage egg donation in the UK. Currently the supply cannot meet the demand for donor eggs in the UK, seeing many patients go abroad for treatment. The London Egg Bank aims to increase the number of UK donors, reducing the need for women to use overseas schemes or join long waiting lists for treatment.
The UK's largest Sperm Bank
As the largest provider of donor sperm in the UK, The London Sperm
Bank at the LWC aims to give women as wide a choice as possible,
negating the need to travel abroad.
