Where is the satellite?

Worcestershire Fertility is usually located at the Spire South Bank Hospital in Worcester, with clinics also run in The Spire Clinic, Droitwich Spa if that is more convenient for you. Both sites are close to the M5 and local train stations.

Who can use the satellite?

The Worcestershire Fertility satellite service is only available to self-funding patients, and NHS patients from Herefordshire. Unfortunately, Worcestershire NHS patients cannot be treated at Worcestershire Fertility.

How do I arrange an appointment?

To book a consultation to see Mr Hughes at Worcestershire Fertility please contact Worcestershire Fertility on 01905 362269  or patient.services@oxfordfertility.co.uk. Alternatively, please complete the following secure self-referral form.

For self-funding patients, a doctor referral is not required, however, it may help to avoid duplication of investigations and keep the expense of treatment as low as possible if you ask your GP to refer you. Your GP can send a referral letter to the clinic before your appointment. Alternatively, please complete the following self-referral form.

For NHS IVF treatment you must be referred by a doctor to confirm that you are eligible for NHS funding. NHS waiting times are currently only 2-3 weeks. Referrals can be emailed to patient.services@oxfordfertility.co.uk

Which appointments can I have at the satellite?

We are able to perform investigations such as ultrasound scans, blood tests of ovulation (egg production) and hormone profiles. If sperm testing and fallopian tube testing (HyCoSy) are required, these will be carried out at Oxford Fertility.

In addition to these services, all of the investigations and treatments offered by Oxford Fertility can be arranged. These include fertility assessments for couples worried they may have difficulty conceiving, ovulation induction for women with polycystic ovarian syndrome, fresh IVF/ICSI cycles, frozen embryo replacement cycles, intra-uterine insemination (IUI) and donor insemination (DI).

Complex fertility treatments (such as IVF) can involve up to ten visits to a fertility centre for investigations and treatment. At Worcestershire Fertility we aim to carry out most of these visits in Worcester, providing a friendly local service and minimising inconvenience to you. Even with the most complicated treatments, most couples will only need to attend the central unit in Oxford three times. Although the details can vary for most couples, these three visits will usually be to provide a sperm sample/visit the nurse, for collection of the eggs and embryo transfer.

How will using the satellite affect my treatment?

The aim of the satellite service is to make treatment more convenient for you. Worcestershire Fertility is run by Mr Jon Hughes who is the fertility lead for NHS patients in Worcestershire. All members of the team work closely with Oxford Fertility, ensuring excellent communication and standard of compassionate care.

Appointments are conducted in line with Oxford Fertility’s protocols, and all scan and blood test results are sent to the main unit for decisions to be made about your treatment. Your chances of success are the same whether you choose to have your appointments in Worcester or Oxford.
