There needs to be more care shown. It almost feels like the only important thing is to make money.

Waiting times can vary, even when you have an appointment time. I have waited up to an hour after my scheduled appointment time. Staff are apologetic and sometimes these things can’t be helped.

Ultimately we had two successful treatments here so I would definitely recommend. The ability to use the satellite office at the Shard for appointments is also very helpful for those who work in the City

The clinic itself, the doctors & nurses and the surgery and after-care were excellent. However, I found the administrative side poor. I was also once given the wrong medication at their dedicated on-site pharmacy which could have been terrible and made me very upset and anxious. they did follow up quickly with apologies/contact.

The Lister Hospital in Chelsea did everything to make mine and my partner's experience with IVF as pleasant as could be, despite the difficult circumstances we were in (my partner had been through cancer after a miscarriage, and was told rather abruptly by a consultant at an NHS clinic that 'your eggs are no good' - that particular clinic didn't help us with our funding claim to the NHS (the funding team called the clinic several times without any response, leading them to terminate our claim, which meant we had to rely on what little savings we had and help from family and friends). We are currently expecting our daughter in October 2023, and it was thanks to the Lister Hospital. Every member of staff we approached was courteous, understanding and helpful. We would not hesitate to recommend them to friends, and to go through them again should we want to.

It felt somewhat impersonal because I had accessed all scans and blood tests through a closer service as I was donating my eggs and so had built no relationship with the staff. I was very young when I donated and felt quite out of place in a private expensive clinic that I would not have been able to afford if I was having treatment myself. The anaesthetist however was fantastic and I felt very safe with her, despite having no previous contact with her

Frozen Embryo Transfer
Overall Feedback
Other than my own doctor who was excellent, I came into contact with other doctors such as the ones who did the egg collection and embryo transfer and each doctor was exemplary in their care, took the time to explain next steps and answer questions.

Good clinic but I would push them on dosage of medication, they tend to underdose and treatment plans are not very tailored to you. Do research / see other clinics as well before deciding.

Don’t double book appointments - this led to lots of waiting time Be clear on success rates and then as and when things change give a clear message. More professional in embryo transfers eg I feel the environment could be more sterile The staff we generally nice but given the high cost I don’t expect to always be waiting for appointments. Felt they didn't investigate the male factor we face that throughly
