One of the first NHS Hospitals to offer IVF

We were the first NHS hospital in the West Midlands to set up a successful IVF programme. In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) was first undertaken at the centre in 1990 following a successful charity appeal to set up the unit. This makes us one of the longest serving and established centres in the UK, which has performed thousands of cycles of IVF and ICSI in addition to thousands of other treatments to help treat infertility or recurrent miscarriage.

Approximately half of the IVF and ICSI treatments we undertake are NHS funded but the CRM also provides treatments to self-funding patients.

The service is provided in a purpose built centre for IVF utilising the latest technology including the EmbryoScope to achieve our fantastic success rates. It is run by a highly skilled multi-disciplinary team who bring vast experience and expertise to the field. As such, we are recognised as one of the few clinics accredited to train Embryologists enrolled on the Scientist Training Programme (STP). We also hold combined clinics with specialists in Endocrinology and Urology and have close links with Genetics and Biochemistry. The team works closely with other experts in the related areas of gynaecology, early pregnancy and obstetrics to provide a seamless service. Patients have the safety of being treated in a major hospital with state-of-the-art facilities very close at hand.

We provide the highest care to all of our patients and understand the emotional journey you are undertaking. Our team is with you every step of the way.

The Centre for Reproductive Medicine has a quality management system in place certified to ISO 9001:2015. This ensures that the department provides a quality service to its patients with continual improvement year on year. This system also satisfies the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority requirements for quality management. The Centre is assessed bi-annually to ensure that our high standards are maintained.
