Clinic details: Croydon is a well-known town in the south of London, under 10 miles away from the central Charing Cross Station. While technically a part of Surrey, the London Borough lies on an important transport route to the south of England, a geographical position which has fuelled its development, particularly through the industrial revolution. Croydon became well known for metal working and car construction, as well as an important airport. While more recently the town has shifted into the service sector, it retains a strong history of industry. Shirley Oaks Hospital benefits from the many excellent transport links Croydon has developed, allowing the facility to provide a myriad of different services to people of different backgrounds and locations in the south. Shirley Oaks provides a diverse range of treatments ranging from extremely successful and popular assisted reproduction technologies like intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilisation to the practice of storing, freezing, and donating eggs. Two methods of surgical sperm retrieval are practiced, and sperm can hence be extracted either through testicular epididymal extraction or percutaneous epididymal aspiration. Two less commonly practiced but still successful options are made available through zygote intra-fallopian transfer (ZIFT) and gamete intra-fallopian transfer (GIFT), techniques with an established record of helping couples when used. Such a range of treatments means that the fertility service at Shirley Oaks Hospital is able to examine a patient and tailor treatment to individual needs, thereby making the care service as a whole more efficient, personable, and successful.

Fertility treatment at this clinic: Shirley Oak Hospital is part of the nationally renowned BMI Healthcare chain of private hospitals. Located in Croydon, the hospital is a 47 bed facility, with each bed housed in a private en-suite room carrying with it the comforts ofSatellite television and nourishing, appetising, and regular meals from onsite catering staff. The facilities are run with the latest technologies in the field, and a number of different specialist departments are available for use by patrons of different shapes and sizes. Treatment is led by NHS consultants, under whom a dedicated staff of Resident Medical Officers and nurses provide 24 hour coverage of care. Everything from simple investigations and diagnostic tests to complicated surgeries can be performed under one state of the art roof. Fertility services at the hospital are under an HFEA license and different treatment approaches are available for your benefit as a patient. Treatments are led by consultant obstetrician, gynaecologist, and subspecialists in reproductive medicine Mr Emmanuel Ofuasia, Mr Michael Booker, and Miss Shahnaz Akbar, all of whom have the many years of experience in the field which is necessary to achieving the position of consultant in the NHS. Shirley Oaks Hospital encourages and provides couples with the opportunity to come and have an informal visit at the centre, allowing them to make a decision based on their perception and feelings about the hospital. Because of the emotional nature of infertility, choosing a care provider that you feel comfortable with can be as important as that provider's success rates and reputation.
