Our LWC Clinics have the highest success rates in Wales and Bristol

London Women’s Clinic Wales and Bristol is one of the most established and successful clinics in the country since it formed in Swansea in 1993. The main laboratory moved to Cardiff in 2012 and we further expanded into Bristol in 2016 with a new satellite centre. We also have the longest running preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) service in Wales and the South West.

According to the latest HFEA verified data, we have consistently been the best performing clinic for babies born following IVF/ICSI. This data shows the chance of success from all fresh and frozen embryo transfers within two years of one egg collection. Our precision embryology approach and quality of service has led to a high cumulative live birth rate as demonstrated by these figures

 

Clinic Births per egg collection (% <38 years 2015-2017)
LWC Wales and Bristol 51%
CARE Bath 50%
Oxford Fertility 49%

CRGW 43%
Ocean Suite (Plymouth) 43%
BCRM 42%

WFI Cardiff 31%

Verified live birth rates are available from the HFEA website. Please note that success rates have limitations as the basis for comparison and personal choice. Further advice on what to look for in a clinic can be found here.
