At TFP Boston Place Fertility we recognise that not every patient would wish to have egg donation treatment in the UK. For this reason, we do have some associations with overseas clinics who we are happy to recommend. We can often assist with a co-management arrangement for these cycles whereby any scans and blood tests can be performed locally with us and communicated back to your clinic.
Our link with Shady Grove Fertility (in Rockville, Maryland, US) has proven highly successful, enabling us to offer donor egg treatment to UK patients who may have to wait for donor eggs. This link with the established US clinic has received excellent feedback from patients.
TFP Boston Place Fertlity is happy to endorse Shady Grove Fertility as their practices are well defined, their doctors and staff are highly skilled and they have pioneered a number of current practices. Furthermore, their donors are fully and stringently screened in accordance with current UK legislation. The clinic offers access to a good supply of quality donor eggs and sperm.
The main difference between overseas and UK donors is that in other territories all donors are anonymous. In the UK, donors consent to provide certain information that could lead to them being identified. In other words it is possible for any child born from a UK donor (at the age of 18) to trace their biological parent.
