I was delighted to be asked to the opening of Norfolk’s first fertility clinic yesterday at Wymondham near Norwich. The clinic is the latest outpost of Bourn Hall Cambridge – the UK’s first ever fertility clinic which was originally set up by IVF pioneers Robert Edwards and Patrick Steptoe.
It’s great that Norfolk finally has a fertility clinic; it had been one of those neglected areas of the country where having a fertility problem comes with the additional difficulty of needing to travel for treatment. People don’t always give location sufficient consideration when choosing a clinic – a journey which seems fine when you do it once can sometimes become a complete nightmare when you’re doing it on a regular basis and can add to the stress of treatment.
