About Complete Fertility Centre
Our mission is to provide compassionate, patient-centric, research-based, accessible fertility care for every patient that optimises the chance of achieving healthy singleton babies at the earliest opportunity.
Based at the Princess Anne Hospital in Southampton, Complete Fertility Centre has close links with the University of Southampton and provides fertility treatment and services for both NHS and self-funded patients in the UK. We also have satellite clinics in Bournemouth and Portsmouth for patients who would prefer appointments closer to home.
Complete Fertility Ltd became part of the Virtus Health family in 2018. As part of Virtus Health, one of the world’s leading fertility groups, we share experience and knowledge from around the world ensuring you get access to the very best reproductive medical care.
Our experienced team works with you to develop a personal conception plan, using the most advanced, proven techniques available. That's why our success rates are consistently above the national averages.

- Private patients
Here at Complete Fertility we have a number of options for you to consider if you would like private treatment with us.
There is no requirement for a GP referral for private treatment, just give us a call today to book an appointment.
Private fertility treatment
We offer private appointments with a fertility consultant at Complete Fertility Centre that are sooner than appointments for the NHS Fertility Clinic.
Competitive and comprehensive self pay packages
Our price lists detail everything included in our comprehensive self-pay packages so that you can see clearly the costs involved in your treatment without any hidden surprises.
We offer our IVF, ICSI, FET, and IUI patients the option of an interest-free finance plan, instead of a lump sump payment. An interest-free payment plan will allow you to spread your payments over 12 months with no interest and no fees to pay.
Sharing some of your eggs with another woman via our egg sharing programme is an amazing and generous gift and gives you both the chance of having a baby.
We have developed two egg sharing packages that include everything you need for IVF treatment. The only additional costs if required are half price ICSI and embryo freezing, and list price donor sperm.
Our standard S1 package is £0. Our S2 package is £500 and is suitable for women who wish to donate half of their eggs to their partner or a known recipient in order to achieve a pregnancy, and share the other half with an anonymous recipient.
We understand that struggling to conceive can be an upsetting and isolating time. We offer a confidential and supportive fertility counselling service to support you before, during and after the varying stages of your fertility journey.

- Caring specialist staff
Our team of fertility experts work in partnership with our patients to individually tailor their treatment and conception schedules. Our patients are assigned a fertility nurse specialist team to help at every stage. All our fertility nurse specialists have been trained to a high standard and are committed to the patient’s wellbeing throughout their treatment.
Patients have free access to professional Counsellors providing on-going personal and emotional support.
We offer your first embryology consultation free of charge. During this consultation an expert clinical embryologist will discuss your eggs, sperm and embryos in more detail whilst offering you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about your gametes, their culture and development.

- A private facility enclosed within the safety of an NHS hospital
Our innovative centre is located within Princess Anne Hospital with direct access to University Hospital expertise and services.
Our team delivers a service of the highest quality, backed up by the resources of one of the biggest teaching hospitals in the country, Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust.
Patients of the Complete Fertility Centre can rest assured that their care and their families care are supported by a great number of specialist services at Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust if required.

- Our preparations for a no-deal Brexit
We wanted to reassure you that we have carefully assessed the risk to our patients of a no-deal Brexit.
Complete Fertility have undertaken an assessment of the risks to the supply of all essential supplies that support fertility treatment if the UK leaves the EU without an agreement on 31st October 2019.
All of our suppliers from around Europe and further afield have been contacted about their Brexit plans and we have received reassuring responses that they are also preparing for this scenario. To counter-balance the risk of finding it harder to source some essential supplies that support fertility treatment post Brexit, we have ordered extra supplies of key equipment and, where possible, sourced alternative back-ups.
We will continue to assess the situation, talk to all of our suppliers, and remain vigilant to any changes that could affect our supply chain as we find out how Brexit pans out.
