Drop-in session boost for would-be parents
Cambridge IVF, which is part of Cambridge University Hospitals Trust, will throw open its doors between 6pm and 8pm on 10 and 24 October and 7, 21 and 28 November.
The decision came after a dozen concerned people came to sessions this month, organised by consultant embryologist Stephen Harbottle and the team, based at Kefford House, Maris Lane, Trumpington.
Mr Harbottle reassured guests that although they would be expected to self-fund treatment, they can still be sure of the same quality of care, and every penny will be ploughed back into the NHS.
Cambridge IVF, which is cheaper than private clinics, has a higher than national average success rate of live births per frozen embryo transfer – 34 per cent for women under 40-years-old.
Close links with the Trust’s Rosie Maternity and Addenbrooke’s Hospitals smooth the “patient pathway”, and work with the Cambridge research community brings latest developments to clinical practice quickly and safely.
