Clinic details: Luton is a well-known town in Bedfordshire, with its own airport and excellent rail transport links. The Luton Town football club has risen to prominence several times earning the town much respect in the sporting quarter, and the Luton Carnival is Europe's biggest single day carnival! The headquarters of Vauxhall remains within Luton, and for some years Luton's industry was well known for hat production. The L&D Hospital is also one of Luton's major boasts, and the hospital's fertility department has become known for its successful treatments. The most common fertility ailments treated at the L&D are endometriosis (growth of the endometrium outward into the reproductive tract), polycystic ovarian syndrome, fibroids (a benign perforation of the uterine wall), and recurring miscarriages. The clinic also provides gynaecological surgeries and procedures 0that can be part of fertility treatments like hysteroscopy for polyps and fibroids, myomectomy, tubal patency checks, and laparoscopy. Assisted conception therapies provided by the clinic are composed of intrauterine insemination with the induction of ovulation by way of fertility drugs, and this treatment is known to be remarkably effective in many instances. Nearby specialist andSatellite centres are within easy access of the L&D, allowing the hospital to offer these treatments to many communities in the surrounding region. Intrauterine insemination is the practice of taking a sperm sample and placing it into a female uterus, and is very useful in instances of premature ejaculation, impotence, and retrograde ejaculation (where semen is ejaculated backwards into the bladder).

The limb fitting services of the region are based at the L&D, and it is a provider and organiser of one of the UK's largest and most comprehensive Breast Screening Centre.

The hospital can be found on the M1's J11 and so is easy to get to by car, and the site has a large car park of 400 spaces for its patients.
