This information was correct at the time of publishing. It may not reflect our current practices, prices or regulations.

If you’re considering either NHS or private infertility treatment, you may have read with interest the stories in the media about IVF drugs and supermarket prices.

The fact is that when it comes to infertility treatment, you are free to obtain the drugs you need for your IVF from anywhere you please. It does not have to be from the clinic where you are having treatment, you can indeed buy the prescribed drugs from any chemist which provides them.

In some instances, purchasing your drugs from another source other than your clinic can be a way to reduce your costs. But this all depends on the prices your clinic is charging you. Some believe that this is how clinics make extra money from you – by overcharging you for fertility drugs which you can obtain cheaper yourself from a high street pharmacy.

But actually, this may not be the case. At Manchester Fertility, you’ll find our prices comparable to any which you find in the high street including supermarkets.

Through our supplier Pharmasure, your personalised drug regime with exact doses is delivered straight to your door, with the full hands-on support of our nursing team if you need it, to help you self-inject safely, with confidence. All additional equipment you need is also supplied, such as needles and sharp disposable boxes.

All IVF and fertility drugs are delivered according to your personal treatment plan, enabling us to keep your treatment on schedule.
