Treatments at the London Women's Clinic Bristol

We provide a full range of fertility treatments and services with success rates consistently the highest in Wales. London Women's Clinic Bristol is also an approved NHS provider that offers top-quality care to patients who require NHS funding, as well as self-funded patients. The funding is granted by the CCG and is subject to their criteria. Consultations, investigations and treatment monitoring takes place at our first class facility in Clifton Park with IUI, egg collection and embryo transfer at our state-of-the-art clinic in Cardiff.

Our LWC Clinics have the highest success rates in Wales 

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
