This service was the idea of Edinburgh-based Dr Caroline Phillips PhD - a former colleague of Professor Sir Ian Wilmut who led the team responsible for Dolly the sheep. Caroline could see a need for providing patients with help through the quagmire of jargon and information that exists on infertility sites. People visiting Fertilityclinicsabroad.com will find information on Czech IVF clinics and IVF costs in Prague. To proceed further they will complete the IVF clinic matching form; the information provided will be used to match the individual with the three most suitable IVF clinics.
Fertility Clinics Abroad is totally impartial and receives no fee from any clinic and so the service is focussed solely on the needs of those requiring treatment. Uniquely, the clinics recommended will have been assessed as a result of personal visits and not just hearsay and research undertaken online. Dr Phillips has herself worked in research labs and in IVF clinics. She explains, “Many IVF clinics based abroad have websites which are good at describing their clinic, but leave many unanswered questions. Surfing from one website to the next is time-consuming and confusing. We aim to provide a quality and trusted service where we guide people to the best IVF clinic for them”.
Lots of people across Europe are travelling abroad for fertility treatment. In 2010 the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) commissioned a study of 46 clinics across Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Switzerland, Slovenia and Spain. They estimated that as many as 25,000 cross-border treatment cycles may be carried out in Europe each year. Many people travel from the UK, but with patients missing out on entitlement to IVF treatment due to the so-called NHS lottery then we can assume the number will only increase.
Fertility Clinics Abroad will initially offer the bespoke service to people seeking IVF treatment in Prague. Caroline has personally visited many of the IVF clinics in Prague, and is currently busy expanding the service to cover Brno in the Czech Republic and also IVF clinics in Spain. These are among the most popular destinations for people from the UK to visit for treatment.
The service costs £295, for which a fully personalised report including photographs will be provided. The report includes detailed information setting out the answers to all of the pertinent questions that should be asked of a clinic. Topics explored include (but are not limited to): results, staffing levels, donor recruitment procedures, quality control.
People considering travelling to the Czech Republic for IVF treatment can visit fertilityclinicsabroad.com for more information or phone Caroline on 0131 524 8193.
