Referral Procedure

Your first contact with the Leicester Fertility Centre may be through gynaecology or an informal visit to meet one of our nursing staff who will welcome you to the unit and explain the general procedure to you.

We need you to be referred by your GP or by a hospital consultant. There is often a considerable amount of information that the surgery will have about your infertility problems including relevant test results

We offer NHS funded treatment for the following CCG's

East Leicestershire and Rutland (Both previously Leicestershire and Rutland PCT)

West Leicestershire

Leicester City (Previously Leicester City PCT)

We may also be able to offer NHS funded treatment to patients from other CCG's upon application 

All NHS funded treatment is subject to funding criteria which includes:

  •  Location of your GP 

  • Information about your current relationship including any children

  • Information about any previous relationship(s) including any children
  • Personal information about you including age, weight, smoking and other social habits
