A new fertility clinic run by leading West Country fertility treatment provider Bristol Centre for Reproductive Medicine (BCRM) has opened at Infinity Healthcare’s Ash Tree Clinic at Cardiff Gate and is already providing local fertility advice and diagnosis for people in Cardiff 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 Cardiff clinic is run by Dr Valentine Akande, a consultant gynaecologist and fertility expert with more than 20 years of specialist experience who has personally helped several hundred fulfil their dream of having a baby. He also has an outstanding international reputation, has organised and chaired numerous conferences, and gives lectures both locally and internationally.
Valentine Akande said: “We are so pleased to launch our Cardiff clinic and look forward to helping create families for people who are having difficulty conceiving naturally.
“We treat heterosexual couples, single women and same-sex couples, and BCRM consistently has the best IVF success rates in the south west of England and Wales, making us one of the top fertility clinics in the UK.
“Initial consultations and diagnostic scans to find out why it might be proving difficult for someone to conceive a baby will be carried out in Cardiff.
“Then if patients need any surgical procedures, 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.
“This depends on the nature of the fertility challenge a patient is facing – some 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 Cardiff BCRM clinic is housed at Infinity Healthcare, Ash Tree Clinic, Cardiff Gate, CF23 8RW.
