About the Wales Fertility Institute

The Wales Fertility Institute offers a full range of assisted reproduction treatments and the highest standard of care.  

Our highly qualified team of consultants, embryologists, nurses, laboratory, counselling and administration staff offer a friendly and supportive environment to couples seeking infertility advice and treatment to help them reach their goal of becoming a family.

We realise that assisted reproduction can be a highly emotional experience, and we offer an individually tailored plan for each couple to help them remain actively involved and ensure they have complete confidence in decisions affecting their treatment.

The Wales Fertility Institute has strong links with the research team at Cardiff University and Swansea University who strive to find ways of increasing the chances of pregnancy in infertile couples.  This allows us to continually develop the latest techniques in assisted reproduction, and ensure that our patients are offered the most appropriate treatment.

All team members are expected to operate in a way that is consistent with the values of the Health Board; “caring for each other”, “working together” and “always improving”. 

We will remember to put the  patient in the centre of all that we do and decisions that we make.
