WHERE CAN I FIND FURTHER INFORMATION REGARDING NATIONAL RESULTS?

The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) publish verified results for each UK clinic and these are updated on a six monthly basis. For further information regarding pregnancy rates visit http://www.hfea.gov.uk

However, due to changes in policy the HFEA are not currently updating the published data, we do not know when they will resume data verification and publication. This means that data is several years old and probably not relevant to what is currently happening in the clinic.

Therefore to give you a more current view of our results we are sharing our HFEA performance benchmarking data. This data relates to our pregnancy rates and is based on our data submissions, it covers a 12 rolling month period with an in-built 3 month lag. The HFEA bench mark our pregnancy and birth rate data against the national average.

Clinics may present their pregnancy rates in different ways which can be confusing and misleading. When looking at the success rates for a clinic, it's very important that you look at the figures carefully and ensure you look at those most relevant to your personal circumstances.

Multiple Births

Multiple pregnancies are the single biggest risk of fertility treatment to the health and the welfare of both mother and child. Multiple pregnancies carry higher risk of preterm (premature) labour, miscarriage and low birth weight. Therefore the birth of a single, healthy child is the safest, most desirable outcome of fertility treatment.

In our clinic, we encourage all good prognosis couples to have to just one embryo transferred to reduce the probability of multiple pregnancies.

The HFEA has set a target for all clinics in UK to limit the multiple birth rate to less 10% .

 Multiple birth rate for this clinic (July 2014-end June 2015 data)

20%

HFEA Target for multiple births (October 2012 onwards)

10%

 

** This is the most recent verified data on the HFEA website, however more recent unverified data sets our multiple pregnancy rate at 14.2% for 2017.**
