General Fertility Assessment Clinic

This service provision, led by Valentine Akande, (Consultant Gynaecologist), and managed by Melanie Charman, (AGM), continues to provide fertility assessment and provide non-licensed treatments at Southmead Hospital.

GPs will continue to be able to refer to this service for fertility assessment and investigation. Patients will continue to have assessments, tests and advice on their best treatment options including ovulation induction, fertility surgery and undertake complex tests such as genetics, hormone analysis, laparoscopy, tubal tests and MRI scans where appropriate.

There is no change to the Criteria Based Access (CBA) paperwork that needs to accompany these referrals.

Clinics will continue to be delivered from the Bristol Centre for Reproductive Medicine (BCRM) consulting rooms.
