The site lists all licensed IVF clinics in the United Kingdom according to county/area. If you live in the US, information about US IVF centres by region is available. We do apologize for not providing similar lists of the other overseas IVF clinics. We are currently exploring the possibility of linking to external websites to provide this information.

All information about the UK IVF centres is adapted from the HFEA publication "The Patients Guide to IVF Clinics 2008".
