Our history and ethos

The Lister Fertility Clinic is widely recognised as one of the leading private fertility treatment centres in the UK. The clinic was established in 1988 and since opening, it has maintained its reputation as being one of the most successful IVF treatment clinics in the UK with over 20,300 "Lister" babies born.

Throughout, the Lister Fertility Clinic has achieved consistently high IVF success rates under the leadership of the clinic founder, Mr Hossam Abdalla, who was at the forefront of new developments in the field of infertility and now under the leadership of Clinical Director Mr James Nicopoullos.

Our private fertility treatment success rates are high both at our London clinic and our satellite fertility treatment centres. These success rates are achieved whilst assisting many couples with complicated histories, whose fertility treatment has previously been unsuccessful or who may have been declined treatment elsewhere

Drawing upon our experience of treating over 2,000 couples per year, our highly skilled team of doctors, nurses, embryologists and counsellors are committed to providing you with a holistic and considered approach to investigating and treating a wide spectrum of fertility problems. This is supported by the very best medical and scientific services available in the field.

At the Lister Fertility Clinic we aim to create an environment of genuine care and warmth, providing the emotional support you need balanced with our professional fertility advice. We endeavour to empower you with the knowledge and information that will enable you to be involved in the decision-making processes that in turn allows us to tailor fertility treatment to your individual needs. We encourage you to discuss freely with us your anxieties and problems and we believe that this free association creates a relaxed atmosphere within the Clinic and thus is a contributing factor to our overall high success rates and patient satisfaction.

At The Lister Fertility Clinic, our aim is to help you to achieve your long-awaited family, but if this is just not possible, we hope that we would have helped you to come to terms with your infertility.
