Fertility Services

Camden
Add to CPD

We now request that all semen analysis referrals are made via e-referrals. This is the way to find the service:

Specialty – Gynaecology
Clinic Type – Family Planning,  Infertility, Not Otherwise Specified 
Organisation/Location – University College Hospital Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Wing
Service Name - Routine Semen Analysis - Reproductive Medicine Laboratory  - UCLH – RRV.

We will no longer be able to book semen analysis appointments through direct requests from patients or GP surgeries to uclh.fertilitylab@nhs.net.

Our current wait for appointments is approximately 10-12 weeks.  We are working our way through our waiting lists as quickly and safely as possible, and currently still require patients to bring their samples with them to their appointment. Instructions are sent to the patient around a month before their appointment.
