A new fertility clinic run by leading West Country fertility treatment provider Bristol Centre for Reproductive Medicine (BCRM) has opened at the Sulis Hospital in Peasedown St John and is already providing local fertility advice and diagnosis for people in Bath struggling to have a baby.

The new clinic provides initial specialist consultations and diagnosis of why it may be proving difficult to conceive, with follow-up treatment – if required - taking place at BCRM’s state-of-the-art clinic at Aztec West in north Bristol.

The Bath clinic is run by Dr Sarah Armstrong, a consultant gynaecologist and specialist in reproductive medicine and surgery. She has previously worked at St Michael’s Hospital in Bristol and the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, and is an experienced practitioner, researcher and lecturer on fertility issues.

Sarah Armstrong said: “The launch of our clinic in Bath is good news for anyone living locally who might be having difficulty conceiving a baby naturally.

“BCRM treats heterosexual couples, single women and same-sex couples, and we consistently have the best IVF success rates in the south west of England and Wales, making us one of the top fertility clinics in the UK.

“Patients can have their initial consultations and diagnostic scans to find out why it might be proving difficult to conceive a baby carried out in Bath.

“Then if any surgical procedures are needed, such as egg retrieval or embryo transfer, they will attend our Bristol clinic which is very easy to access: close to the M4/M5 junction north of Bristol and with plenty of free parking.

“Every patient is unique, so the treatment suggested will depend on the nature of the fertility challenge they are facing. It is possible that for some their issues may be resolved after an initial consultation with me.

“Once a pregnancy is established, follow-up appointments will be with the patient’s usual GP or their local maternity hospital.”

The most recent data published by the UK's independent regulator, the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA), revealed that for women aged under 38 BCRM provides the highest chances in Bristol of having a baby with IVF or ICSI treatment, per embryo transferred.

The Bath BCRM clinic is housed in the Sulis Hospital (formerly Circle Bath Hospital) on Foxcote Avenue, Peasedown St John. Further information is available on our dedicated website page or contact the BCRM Patient Advisors to book appointments on 0117 2591159.
