The Dorset Fertility Service is based at the Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital and also has clinics at the BMI Harbour Hospital in Poole. The service accepts referrals from General Practitioners for all types of infertility and also self-referral direct from patients.

All patients will be under the personal care of Mr Julian Pampiglione.

IVF Satellite

We are a HFEA recognised satellite unit to the Woking Nuffield Assisted Conception unit (licensed centre 0144) and adhere to their protocols of management. Patients having private treatment can have their monitoring in Dorset so as to minimise disruption to their work and lives in general by avoiding having to travel for each appointment. The egg collection and the embryo transfer is carried out at the Woking Nuffield IVF unit.

We will set up and plan your treatment and provide appropriate medication. The cost of the treatment is the same as at the parent unit (for prices see

Woking Nuffield assisted conception unit have one of the highest pregnancy rates per embryo transferred in the UK. They have an advanced blastocyst culture programme and achieve that high pregnancy rate by putting single advanced embryos back where possible. By doing this they have maintained the high pregnancy rate at all ages whilst having one of the lowest multiple pregnancy rates in the country. HFEA data shows that if you have 2 blastocysts you get more livebirths overall by putting them back separately rather than together.

You should always check out clinics pregnancy rates at by going to the patients section, selecting advanced search on the ‘choose a fertility clinic’ section and then putting in your region.

Don’t be afraid to look at clinics further away. With us the satellite service makes access easy.
