Official at last, we have a new home to look forward to when we relocate from Queen Mary's to Kingston Hospital in June 2012. There has been a unit at Queen Mary's since 1994 but we have outgrown the space and it is time to look forward to expanding the services we provide in our new, large and purpose built unit. We will have more space and better facilities so that we are able to meet the ever increasing demand for fertility treatment in the South West London and Surrey areas.
Of course there will be some sadness at leaving Roehampton where we developed our unique approach to providing assisted conception but the fertility clinics will remain so we will have plenty of opportunity to visit old friends on a regular basis.
We are keen to keep everyone fully informed about the move and as such we will be making regular entries to this blog and we have introduced a twitter feed @kingstonacu which we would encourage everyone to follow.

We, at Queen Mary's will be writing to all of the NHS Surrey couples who we have identified as needing assisted conception by the end of November so that we can proceed with treatment. as soon as possible.
