Innovation and Quality
Innovation and fertility treatment go hand in hand as clinics across the UK strive to achieve better outcomes for patients. But at Manchester Fertility, innovation doesn’t just apply to treatments.
Our intrinsic culture, influencing and driving every area of operation, is built into the core competence of our business. It’s how we have evolved from a small, Manchester-based clinic to become one of the most reputed names in fertility care in the UK.
We were a pioneer for IVF over 30 years ago, welcoming Manchester’s first ever IVF baby in 1987. We have stayed at the forefront of infertility treatments through continuous reinvestment of revenue in the latest scientific innovations, technologies and systems to improve the patient experience at every stage. We do not innovate by offering experimental treatments, moreso our services must be of the benefit to our patients, and are only offered after systematic review by our leading consultant team of experts.
Our sole focus is to give all of our patients the greatest chance of a baby, whilst setting the standard for responsible and informed fertility treatment and care.
Our ideas and thought leadership are life changing for patients. Our commitment to innovation across all areas of the business has improved the way people have families through private IVF: How they enquire about it, how they start their journeys, how they progress with confidence and how they fund it.
Some of our core in-clinic innovations include:
- Meditex Patient Portal: A secure online treatment tracker for patients to access anytime
- Engaged MD: Tracks and collects all treatment consent forms
- Electronic Witnessing: A track-and-trace system safeguarding all eggs, embryos and sperm
- EmbryoGlue: Used for all embryo transfers free of charge, helps the embryo to adhere to the uterus after transfer
- Vitrification: Fast-freezing technology that improves survival rates for frozen eggs and embryos
- Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening: Advanced embryo selection where all chromosomes in the developing embryo are tested
- Endometrial Receptivity Array Test (ERA): Genetic test to provide a personalised embryo transfer
- SpermComet: Analyses levels of DNA damage in each individual sperm
- Skype consultations: For maximum patient convenience
- Custom-designed smartphone App to further support patients on their individual journeys to pregnancy.
We were the first clinic in the country to offer ‘shared-risk’ IVF plans through a strategic partnership with provider Access Fertility where patients are guaranteed a refund if treatment doesn’t result a live birth, in addition to heavily discounted treatment and multiple cycles to increase the chances of success.
And we're the only clinic in the North of the UK to offer a dedicated donor sperm insemination package for single women and same-sex couples, providing tailored treatment and funding solutions to meet the needs of its different patient profiles - all part of our drive to make private treatment as accessible as possible to all those who need help to conceive.
Continuous innovation over the coming years - leading to increased patient numbers and ultimately success rates – is how Manchester Fertility will achieve its objective to be the preferred fertility clinic in the country - investing in new clinical equipment to support Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening and Endometrial Receptivity Array Test services and improved 3D scanning.
Due to the personal nature of our services, Manchester Fertility’s team is a key business component. And because of our innovative and patient-focused reputation, we attract and retain some of the best practitioners in their field; from fertility doctors to embryologists, fertility nurses and counsellors.
We are licensed with the HFEA and hold various quality certification including ISO accreditation: ISO 27001:2013 (Information Security) and ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management).
A long-standing strategy of innovation has allowed us to focus and continuously capitalise on new areas for growth. By improving all aspects of the patient journey through innovation, Manchester Fertility ultimately improves its success rates for fertility treatments – achieving its objective to be the best fertility clinic in the country.
