TAMWORTH has been chosen as the ideal location for a new 'super-clinic' which will open this autumn when Midland Fertility Services relocates from Aldridge.
The West Midlands' longest established independent clinic will transfer all patient care and services to an exclusive high-tech facility on Ventura Park, near the Herald offices on Ventura Park Road.
The site is said to offer almost twice the space than the current facility in Aldridge which the clinic has occupied since 1993.
The same team of highly-experienced staff will also relocate to Tamworth, with the aim of ensuring that patients continue to benefit from the standard of care developed since Midland Fertility first opened in 1987.
As well as the high-tech facilities, the new location also offers private parking and good motorway and transport links.
It will continue to treat private patients as well as those whose treatment is funded by NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups throughout the Midlands.
Midland Fertility's medical director, Dr Gillian Lockwood, said: "Over the last 27 years, almost 6,000 babies have been born as a result of treatment at Midland Fertility and the clinic has achieved many worldwide, UK and regional 'fertility firsts'.
"This relocation will enable the continuation and development of all our diagnostic services and treatments for infertility, fertility preservation and recurrent miscarriage – so giving more people the chance to have the babies they long for.
"The new high-performance procedure suite will offer patients even more comfort during their time with us and the three laboratories are being designed to the very highest specifications.
"It is an extremely exciting time for the development of Midland Fertility and the provision of fertility services in the Midlands, and will ultimately benefit the 800 patients we are privileged to treat each year."
