A referral letter is helpful but not essential. Your GP, or any specialist, can refer you directly to see any of our consultants who are all highly skilled fertility experts. We will write to your GP (with your consent) following the consultation Fertility Referral Advice.
Our service is located in a purpose modern Fertility unit on the Southmead Hospital site with good transport links and on-site car parking available. We also have 9 dedicated car parking spaces directly outside the building for patients.
It is adjacent to the Gynaecology unit: Cotswold ward and clinic.

We respect your privacy and maintain the utmost regard for confidentiality. We will not divulge nor supply information to any other party without your consent.
You will either be asked to pay at the time of you visit or be sent an invoice by post/ email following your appointment. Payment can be made by credit or debit card, bank transfer or cheque.
Following each clinic consultation, test, procedure or operation a letter summarising the findings will be sent to you, if appropriate.
Of course feel free to come on your own, or with your partner friend or relative.
In most case at your first full consultation an ultrasound scan of your reproductive organs including your ovaries, uterus and endometrium will be undertaken even if you’ve had one elsewhere.
It depends on what is meant by natural treatment. We take a holistic approach to your care and will avoid unnecessary intervention if not required. In some cases simple advice may help significantly improve your chances. This is where knowing full details of your medical, family and lifestyle history comes in handy.
It is difficult to answer this question, just as it’s difficult to say whether tablets work. It will depend on why it’s being used and how it is used. We can advise you on reputable alternative therapists if required.
Many General Practitioners (GP) are helpful and will support you during investigations or tests for fertility. If you have tests done in our Fertility Clinic, the Spire Bristol Hospital will bill you for these.
We are open every day. However, consultations only take place Monday to Saturday. Evening appointments are also available.
We are a private clinic, as such you will receive an invoice for attendances unless agreed otherwise. If you reside in Bristol, we’ll be able to help advice you when you may be eligible for treatment. Click here to find out more
