Information for referrers

Bourn Hall provides an excellent and proven fertility preservation service for patients who need or wish to freeze and store their sperm, eggs or embryos for their future use.

Some patients may need to freeze their eggs or sperm before they undertake necessary medical treatment, such as surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy giving them a chance of becoming biological parents when they have recovered.

For others, they may be advised to do so prior to elective surgery, such as gender re-assignment or vasectomy.

On this page you will find guidelines for referral of patients to Bourn Hall for fertility preservation treatment. The leaflet will answer some of your questions about how to make a referral to us and there is also a copy of our referral checklist and referral form which you can download.

For further enquiries please contact our Patient Services team on 01954 717210 or by email on bournhall.referral@nhs.net.

We are here to help.
