Treatments at the London Women's Clinic Swansea

The LWC Swansea has been treating patients in Wales for over 25 years and has the highest success rates in Wales. Our stylish, newly refurbished clinic provides a full range of fertility treatments and services. All consultations, investigations and treatment monitoring takes place in Swansea with IUI, egg collection and embryo transfer taking place at our state-of-the-art facility in the centre of 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
