How do you start IVF? Do you always need to see your GP first? Do you need to live local to a clinic to be a patient?

It’s actually really easy to start IVF at Manchester Fertility if you’re planning treatment in 2018.

No catchment area and no referral needed

Unlike NHS IVF clinics that have patient catchment restrictions, as a private IVF clinic we can accept you as a patient no matter where you live.

And you don’t need to see your GP either. We don’t require a referral from your doctor to make you your first consultation appointment, reducing delays to the start of your journey.
