The Show attracted exhibitors from not only London but also throughout the UK and indeed the world.

The Trust’s unit is located on The Westminster Wing on the first floor of the hospital which has been extensively revamped to provide a comfortable modern environment in which couples using our services can feel as relaxed as possible.

This is of paramount importance in helping couples cope with the inevitable stress and anxiety of fertility treatment.

The Assisted Conception Unit at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital is widely recognised as a leading fertility centre in the UK with more than a decade of proven success.

Staff have experience of treating more than 1,000 couples a year since the well-established unit was founded in 1995, and they include leading experts in this highly specialised field.

Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) statistics for licensed IVF clinics have consistently put the unit at Chelsea and Westminster in the top quartile for pregnancy success rates in NHS units.

A new brochure for patients has been published and there is also now extensive information available on their new-look website at www.chelwest.nhs.uk/acu.
