About us

The Leicester Fertility Centre Assisted Conception Unit was established in 1988. It is one of the few fertility centres that employs gynaecologists that are trained in infertility.

The department offers a complete range of licensed fertility treatments to include in vitro fertilisation (IVF), Intra Cytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), surgical retrieval of sperm, egg donation, egg sharing, donor insemination (DI) and intrauterine insemination (IUI). We have a large donor sperm bank providing a variety of choice for prospective parents and a large sperm-freezing programme for oncology patients.

The department is located in purpose-designed, patient friendly facilities based on the ground floor of the Kensington Building at the Leicester Royal Infirmary and is part of the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust. The ground floor location of the Centre allows for disabled access. As part of the University Hospitals of Leicester all necessary specialist back-up services can be provided.

The regional Andrology service is also based at the Leicester Fertility Centre; a professional team able to offer service users immediate clinical advice is available five days a week. Both NHS and private patients are treated.

Being a relatively small unit, we can offer a very personal treatment service. Patients get to know us very well indeed and find us very approachable.

The following languages are spoken by members of staff:

  • English
  • Arabic
  • Hindi
  • Urdu
  • Gujarati
  • Greek
  • Portugese

We also offer information leaflets in any language requested as well as spoken word CDs and DVDs. The Centre is able to offer individually tailored and very personal treatment as a package at a competitive fixed cost.

The Leicester Fertility Centre is ISO 9001 certified and has an HFEA licence with no conditions.

The International Standards Organisation (ISO), is an internationally recognised standard; as a mark of achievement in quality management, it demonstrates our commitment to quality and improvement of services. There are numerous benefits associated with a certified ISO quality management system, including improved service and quality and increased customer satisfaction levels.
