Clinic details: Manchester is one of the busiest cities in the UK, with a population just under half a million according to the 2011 census. The city was in fact home to the world's first train station, and is host to many well-known national sites like Old Trafford, Manchester Victoria Station, and Beetham Tower to name a few. Manchester is also home to a thriving university and a network of NHS trust hospitals known for excellent care. The Department of Reproductive Medicine is housed within St Mary's Hospital, which is otherwise known for providing specialist care for women and so has a number of the latest gynaecological facilities and the like. Andrology services are available at the Department of Reproductive Medicine to test for male factor infertility, which accounts for roughly a third of the cases of infertility reported. Similarly tests are available to ascertain female factor infertility, which also accounts for about a third of infertility cases. Artificial insemination and assisted reproduction through lab based in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) allow for successful assisted reproduction treatments, giving many families the pregnancies and live births that they have been struggling to achieve. The department's location means that many people across the region are referred to make use of their services. In 2009 534 cycles of IVF were formed, as well as 509 ICSI cycles. Treatments are offered to NHS patients with a BMI between 19-30 who are at most 39 years of age.
