Getting Started

The Referral Process

We accept referrals for, and treat, both Private and NHS Funded patients.

All patients are entitled to NHS funded fertility investigations; restrictions to NHS funding only apply to treatment itself.

If you have been trying to achieve a pregnancy for a year and have not been successful, you can request basic investigations by your GP.  The investigations you will need are:

Male – a semen evaluation

Female– Prolactin, Day 21 progesterone, Serum Rubella, Hepatitis C antibody, Hepatitis B core antibody, Hepatitis B surface antigen, and Chlamydia antibodies, and an up to date cervical smear.

If you have a specific known problem causing fertility issues, you do not have to wait for a specific length of time.  Referrals due to known fertility issues will be done with no time delay following the initial investigatons detailed above.

Private/Selfing Funded Referrals:  If you would prefer to see one of our specialist fertility consultants on a private basis, with no waiting list, please contact us on 01482 689040 or email  Having an initial private consultation and/or invesigations will not alter your entitlement to NHS funded treatment, as long as you meet your Intergrated Care Board (ICB)’s specified criteria.  Having an initial consultation on a private basis is likely to reduce the length of time to start a treatment cycle.   No referral is needed to make an appointment.

For further information on private/self funding please see:  Self-Funded

NHS Funded Referrals:  If you meet the criteria for NHS funded treatment, you will need to ask your GP to send a referral, enclosing all relevant test results (as described above), it’s important that you let your GP know that you would like treatment at Hull & East Riding Fertility to ensure the referral is directed to the right place.   Once your referral is received we will contact to discuss the next steps.  Once a referral is received at Hull & East Riding Fertility there are no long waiting times and your treatment will begin as soon as you are ready.
