Following hot on the heels of the recent acquisition of Complete Fertility by Virtus Health Ltd, the market leading Assisted Reproductive Services (ARS) provider in Australia and Ireland, CFC is pleased to receive this substantial investment in its facilities.
Upon completion of the refurbishment project, our patients will benefit from additional modern facilities that aim to improve our patient’s experience.
The renovation works consists of a new waiting room that will be tastefully decorated and furnished, additional consulting rooms to see our patients during their fertility journey and a private en-suite room.
“We are looking forward to working in a modern environment that will offer our patients better facilities when visiting us. The contemporary décor including new glass walls with creative designs will brighten up our centre, whilst offering the privacy required in a fertility centre,” said Julia Paget, Head of Fertility Centre.
“During the refurbishment we will endeavour to ensure that our patients encounter the least disruption possible. Work will be undertaken in stages and completion is planned for mid July.”

Clinicians in Southampton are performing a new procedure which can help to preserve fertility in women with newly-diagnosed cancer.
It is known as ovarian tissue cryopreservation and involves removing and freezing healthy ovarian tissue containing eggs before the start of radiotherapy or chemotherapy.
