The Centre for Reproductive and Genetic Health (CRGH) is a world-leading fertility clinic in London with a highly experienced and friendly team who pride themselves on their warm but professional approach. Despite being a busy centre, they manage to maintain individualised fertility treatment care for patients, avoiding a “production line” feel.
Mr Paul Serhal, MRCOG, Medical Director, Hon. Consultant/Senior Lecturer founded CRGH in 1990. Since the opening of the centre over 25 years ago, their specialist team of doctors, embryologists and nurses have assisted thousands of parents achieve their dream of starting a family.
CRGH has consistently delivered some of the best success rates nationally, world leading clinical advancements and excellence – achievements they are proud of, and continue to this day. You can read more about their achievements on the CRGH in the Media page.
Their philosophy is simple: to provide excellence for all their patients in everything they do. Through this founding principle, they ensure that all their patients have the best chance of achieving their dream of a family, without exception.
They believe in creating individualised bespoke patient treatment plans. Their doctors will take a detailed medical history and work closely with you to develop a personalised, realistic and evidence based treatment plan. They provide a full service seven days a week and are open on bank holidays to ensure that we are available for patients at all times. Over the years, we have developed high expertise in the successful management of couples with previous repeated failed IVF cycles and recurrent miscarriage. They take a holistic approach, paying special attention to all factors in prior treatment history to achieve a successful outcome for the patient.
Men and women also vary in terms of their genetics. When appropriate, they employ the widest available genetic screening tests and genetic counselling to minimise the chances of an unsuccessful treatment, and the risk of transmission of genetic disease to children.
CRGH is amongst world-class leaders in the pioneering of new techniques, such as pre-implantation genetic diagnosis and the advancement of fertility treatments.
CRGH possesses a highly specialised state of the art IVF laboratory. Designed and purpose-built just two years ago, it is equipped with all the latest innovations within the IVF field including time lapse incubators, highly filtered and purified air quality and an electronic witnessing system. Their experienced and dedicated team of embryologists are committed to ensuring the best success rates and highest quality of care.
The Centre for Reproductive & Genetic Health (CRGH) is the largest independent clinic in the UK. They operate with one embryology laboratory and one theatre, giving us complete control over quality at every stage. There is no investment from venture capital, and no external corporate bodies – the key people are on site and available to patients. Their doctors and nurses have no financial targets, just clinical excellence and the patient experience.
They pioneered Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) treatment in the UK, and are one of only three centres providing this specialist service to the NHS. They are absolutely transparent about success rates, and regularly advise patients not to undergo treatment where we believe it is not in their best interests.
They have the highest live birth rate per embryo transferred in London, as recognised by the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA). They are proud of their success rates, but even more so of their values, and the people who come to work and live them every day. They want every patient to be glad they chose us for their care. They hope you will be too.
