Welcome to the Newcastle Fertility Centre at Life
Newcastle Fertility Centre was established in 1991 has since developed and expanded and gained the prestigious status it holds today. The Centre moved from the RVI site in 1999 to the Bioscience Centre in the International Centre for Life and was officially opened by Professor Lord Robert Winston on 22nd February 2000.
Newcastle Fertility Centre is an NHS facility within the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and is linked with the Royal Victoria Infirmary. The Centre is also closely associated with the leading UK Medical School at Newcastle University and has active research and teaching programmes.
The Newcastle Fertility Centre primarily provides help and support for couples who have problems related to fertility. Most couples in the North East can be seen as NHS patients and we are pleased to receive referrals via your GP. A fee paying service is available for those who are not eligible for NHS funded treatment.
We recognise the stress that infertility causes couples. We have trained experienced infertility counsellors within the Centre and also provide an independent counselling service for anyone who requests it. The patient self-help group, HOPE, is an active local group and we would be happy to put you in touch with them.
