Advice on IVF centres in the N.E.

Postby S & S » Tue Feb 24, 2004 5:06 pm

Hello,
we are new to this forum but would welcome any comments, experiences or reccomendations from people on IVF centres in the North East. We are particularly interested in The Cromwell Centre at Darlington,James Cook Hospital and the Centre for Life at Newcastle.
Due to our age and waiting lists we are having to go private. If any one has anything to contribute we would welcome it.
Thanks,
S & S.

IVF In the North East

Postby Lotti » Tue Mar 09, 2004 10:14 pm

Hi S&S

I can also recommend Mr Aird the consultant at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead. I am having private ICSI treatment there.

The IVF unit is listed No.7 in the top 10 in the UK and the success percentage for the period 2000/01 for IVF at the QE was 36.3% against national figures (provided by HFEA) of 21.8%. It is even higher now, but I am afraid I don't have these figures, but if you call them (Tel 0191 445 2768) I am sure they will send you the information.

Mr Aird and his whole team are caring, friendly and sympathetic, and will always have time for you, no matter how long you want to sit and discuss everything!

Good Luck :lol:
So, I reakon add these to your list,
1 failed ICSI, 1 failed FET, next treatment starts in May with EC on 1 June 2004, hoping for a 2005 baby!

HI Angelina

Great to hear from someone who also knows the team at the QE.

Is this your first treatment cycle?

I am keeping everything crossed for you - keep us informed xx

Hi Angelina

I am nervous for you too, the 2WW is the worst part about it all really.

8/9 frozen, that's really good! I had 5 frozen, and 3 came out perfect, but still no go for for me (boo).

I live on Rosewood Park in Gateshead (beside Team Valley) and my Doc's is the Bensham Practice on Bensham Road, and my clinic (I am not sure what you mean here) is the IVF unit at the QE.

I am 39, 40 this year - so my body clock is on overdrive!!!!

Please let us know your result next week xxx

Hi Lotti

Thanks for your reply , i live in Co Durham so its a bit of travel up to QE but worth it, the staff are great and its such a small unit and so personal.

I'll let you know how i get on.

Love A
