Complete Fertility Mission Statement
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.
1. To give our patients the best chance of achieving a healthy singleton baby to complete their family.
2. To be a leading centre of clinical and academic achievement.
3. To constantly improve patient care and foster innovation in an organisation that exceeds the expectations of patients and referrers.

5. To work together and embrace change to achieve our goals.
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. These include a full range of women’s health services including gynaecological investigations and the treatment of oncology; an extensive men's health service including male infertility, fetal and maternal medicine offering private scans as required; maternity care; dietetics and the care of new born babies and children.
Continuity and excellence of care is paramount at our Centre.
Our Blastocyst programme has been designed by our Laboratory Director who has specialised in this technique for over 10 years. Blastocyst transfers are more likely to achieve a pregnancy and all patients are offered this at no additional cost.
Our team of fertility experts work in partnership with our patients to individually tailor their treatment and conception schedules. Our patients are assigned a personal fertility nurse specialist 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. Our senior Counsellor is Chair of the British Infertility Counselling Association.
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.
