Our patients can self-refer, but it is sometimes helpful to receive a referral letter from a GP, this can give a clearer picture of previous medical and gynaecological history.

Please bring any relevant information to your initial appointment that may help us to plan your fertility treatment. If you do not wish to inform your doctor, or if you do not have a doctor, please contact the clinic personally to arrange an appointment.

We will offer you an appointment that is convenient for you, usually within two weeks of initial contact.

Written referrals should be made to:

Lister Fertility Clinic at The Portland Hospital
The Lister Hospital
Chelsea Bridge Road
London SW1W 8RH


Please do not hesitate to contact our secretaries if you have any questions regarding the referral process or appointment arrangements.


Overseas patients

Couples from overseas wishing to start a fertility treatment cycle immediately are advised to arrange their initial fertility consultation a week before the onset of the woman’s menstrual period. This will enable a minimal amount of waiting before starting fertility treatment and will allow time for any necessary tests to be carried out. However, please ensure that appointment times are confirmed before travelling to London. We are happy to provide a letter of support for a visa application.
