Newcastle Fertility Centre

Newcastle Fertility Centre

Welcome to the Newcastle Fertility Centre

Newcastle Fertility Centre was established in 1991 and was the first centre in the North East to provide IVF treatment and support for patients that have fertility related problems. We pride ourselves on the ability to provide state-of-the-art treatments using our highly skilled clinical and embryology staff. We have also gained the reputation for pioneering new technologies that have been adopted internationally.

Most couples attending the Newcastle Fertility Centre can be seen as NHS patients. A fee paying service is also available for those who are not eligible for NHS funded treatment.

Our staff and services


Treatments offered
Newcastle Fertility Centre provides a range of treatments and diagnostic tests for male and female patients with fertility problems. As well as performing IVF treatment to couples with fertility problems, we also perform a range specialty services such as surgical sperm retrievals, fertility preservation and a young person's clinic. We are also one of only two centres in Europe that provides PGD (pre-implantation genetic diagnosis) for patients with mitochondrial disease. You can find out more about our range of treatments.
Meet the team
We have a range of highly qualified staff to suit your particular treatment needs. As well as performing routine infertility treatment, some of our specialised staff can treat patients with specific needs. Find out more on our Meet the Team page.
Success rates
We take our results very seriously and continuously monitor our performance. All our results are reviewed monthly to ensure we continue to deliver good results consistently. You can find out more about our success rates.
Private service
Unfortunately not all patients are eligible for treatment funded by the NHS. This is decided by your GP Commissioning Group, but we will be able to tell you whether you are eligible for NHS-funded treatment. To help those who are not eligible, we provide a fee-paying service. You can see our current prices.
Developing treatment and technologies (research)
We have an active world-class research program focussed on providing new and effective treatments for patients with fertility problems. Our research program is currently funded by the Medical Research Council, Wellcome Trust and the National Institute of Health Research. Find out more about our research.
Sperm and egg donation
We are always looking for sperm and egg donors to help infertile couples. You can find out more about sperm and egg donation


Support services

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.
