ONE of the country’s leading IVF clinics, Knutsford-based The Hewitt Fertility Centre, has been shortlisted for a prestigious national award.
The Hewitt Fertility Centre, part of Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust, has been shortlisted in the service innovation category at the 2013 Health Service Journal (HSJ) Awards, because of the outstanding improvements to pregnancy success rates it has achieved during the past 12 months.
The Hewitt Fertility Centre has outstanding success rates for all ages, boasting a staggering 57.3% success rate for clinical pregnancies in under 35-year-olds; more than double the success rates of some of their nearest competitors.
The centre’s implantation rates per embryo transferred are now as good as the best internationally.
Dr Rafet Gazvani, manager of the centre, said: “The service is now achieving success rates that are as good as the best internationally. Our aim is to build on this success by carrying out research with Edge Hill University and with international partners to improve pregnancy rates still further.”
Shortlisted organisations, chosen from a record number of entries, will now complete presentations and interviews to category-specific judging panels made up of 85 senior and influential figures from the health sector.
