Centres which provide transport IVF recognise that patients usually want to be treated locally, by a small and dedicated team, where you will be a familar face to us.  You will tend to see the same doctors and nurses at each visit and build a relationship with the team. However, the best embryology results are usually obtained in large, busy laboratories with highly skilled and experienced scientists, and this would be harder to achieve in a local unit. We can also keep our self-funding costs lower as we do not have the additional expense of maintaining expensive laboratory equipment
