Bourn Hall provides both NHS IVF treatment and self-funded treatment. NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) recommends that three cycles of IVF provide the optimum level of treatment.
To help our patients gain the treatment they need – where it is not available from the NHS – Bourn Hall offers flexible payment options via Access Fertility.
We also have a number of programmes, such as egg sharing and sperm donation, where eligible couples are given free treatment.
