Fertility treatment

Fertility treatment at the Fertility Centre at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, Fulham Road.

Welcome to The Fertility Centre, formerly the Assisted Conception Unit (ACU)

As you may have noticed from the new colour scheme and signage, we have renamed and rebranded our Assisted Conception Unit to The Fertility Centre.

Although a simple change, we believe that this better represents our range of clinical services we provide today as well as our vision for the future.  Moreover, with the recent launch of our fertility service at West Middlesex University Hospital, the new name also creates a common, cohesive identity for our joint-site service. 

Please be assured that our services, our teams and all aspects of your care remain unchanged—The Fertility Centre proudly remains a key part of our NHS Trust and our hospitals.

If you have any questions please call 020 3315 8585 or email .

COVID-19 information

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has offered fertility services since 1995 and is widely recognised as a centre of excellence and a leading NHS fertility centre in London. In 2020 building upon the longstanding success and reputation of our fertility treatment services at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, the new satellite service was opened at West Middlesex University Hospital.

Fertility problems affect one in seven couples. There are options available for everybody when considering assisted conception. We have a genuinely holistic approach as well as multidisciplinary approach. We investigate properly, analyse the factors involved, the overall prognosis, the whole range of available treatments, and we offer advice and form a partnership with each patient or couple. Our purpose is to serve people, and our success rates show that we compete equally with the best private units in London.

Our staff members are experts in this highly specialised field and our active research programme ensures that treatment is based on the most current scientific evidence. Our experienced team treats more than 600 fresh and 200 frozen cycles per year (hfea.org). In addition to our clinical expertise and range of treatment options, we also understand the inevitable stress and anxiety of fertility treatment. Our team is committed to supporting you every step of the way throughout your treatment. Our patients are comprised of 50% NHS and 50% private patients, and we offer both the same excellent standards.

As part of the Imperial College School of Medicine umbrella, the Fertility Centre has an added advantage for our patients as it enables us to provide continuity of care, with related services including gynaecology and maternity.

We treat everyone with fairness within regulatory guidelines, and we practice based on our research evidence and price our services ethically. Finally, we thoroughly enjoy our work. Our patients are extremely loyal to us and we feel the same towards them.
