Local families celebrate official opening of first Norfolk IVF clinic

Bourn Hall Clinic’s new IVF centre at Wymondham, near Norwich, has been welcomed by Infertility Network UK.

Bourn Hall Wymondham - Norfolk IVF treatmentKate Brian, regional organiser for INUK, attended the official opening of the state-of-the-art full service fertility clinic. As an IVF parent herself she understands the rollercoaster of emotions faced by patients.

She says: “At Infertility Network UK, we see at first-hand how difficult infertility can be and we support patients through their fertility treatment. We welcome the opening of this new clinic which will help to make fertility treatment more accessible to people in Norfolk.”

A number of Bourn Hall babies helped to celebrate the opening, including the Dower triplets who, at 21, are among the first 2,000 British IVF babies. When their parents had fertility treatment in the early 1990s IVF success rates were about 15 percent – now nearly 80 percent of Bourn Hall Clinic’s patients become pregnant within three cycles of IVF.

Lead Clinician Mr Al-Taher says: “The clinic is a fantastic, brand-new facility built on over 30 years of history and experience. We look forward to welcoming many Norfolk patients through our doors and providing them with first-class treatment and care.”

Bourn Hall Clinic now has three full-service fertility centres in the East of England: Norwich, Colchester and the world’s first clinic near Cambridge. All offer full fertility services to both NHS and self-funded patients.

Earlier this year Bourn Hall opened a satellite clinic in Wickford Essex and has forged partnerships with satellite clinics at three NHS hospitals in the region: the James Paget University Hospital in Great Yarmouth, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Kings Lynn and the Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.
