At Wessex Fertility we treat NHS and self-funded patients, giving everyone the same expert care and attention. NHS funding is granted by the Clinical Commissioning Group and is subject to certain criteria dependant on the area you live in.
Please ask your GP for specific details regarding eligibility for NHS funding, however, it is based on, among other criteria; female age, BMI, whether both partners are non-smokers and the length of time a couple have been trying to conceive.
The referral for treatment must come either from your NHS GP or NHS Consultant. However, when completing your application for funding, you, the patient, can select which of the several clinics serving the Hampshire and Isle of Wight NHS area you would like to have your treatment at.
NHS funded patients at Wessex Fertility receive the same high level of care and individualised treatment as self-funded patients. We have held an NHS contract and have been treating patients for over 8 years with excellent success and feedback.
Alternatively, if you wish to privately fund your treatment you can self-refer to us by completing our Self-Referral Request. If you have any test results already, please bring these along to your first consultation.
It is likely that you will need to visit your chosen clinic regularly. Finding one close to home will reduce travel time and costs, helping to ease the pressure in anxious times.
We are part of the UK’s largest group of IVF and fertility clinics so it may be possible for you to have some of your appointments closer to home and then come to Wessex Fertility for key elements of your treatment programme. Talk to us if you are interested in this option.
