The festive season is well underway and to get in the Spirit of Christmas Harley Street Fertility Clinic (HSFC) is offering free consultations on three consecutive Saturdays during the month of December,
- 3rd December
- 10th December
- 17th December
in return for a minimum £50 charitable donation to The Eve Appeal, which will also be match-funded by the Clinic.
All proceeds from the consultations will be donated to The Eve Appeal, the only UK national charity that raises awareness and funds research in the five gynaecological cancers – ovarian, wombs, cervical, vaginal and vulva.
In the UK, over 21,000 women are diagnosed annually with gynaecological cancer and around 7,700 die, meaning a staggering 21 women die from gynaecological cancer every-day. Yet, despite these grim statistics, gynaecological cancers are neither a well-profiled nor well-funded cause. The Eve Appeal aims to change that, by funding much needed research, as well as offering support and advice, via their nurse-led ‘ask Eve’, to those suffering from gynaecological cancer and their family and friends.
HSFC offers egg-freezing techniques for patients, prior to commencing cancer treatment to help preserve fertility options for a later date – making The Eve Appeal feel like the perfect choice.
“Harley Street Fertility Clinic wanted to choose a charity which was not only a great cause, but also a cause that was close to our hearts. The Eve Appeal was the perfect choice, as they raise awareness for all five gynaecological cancers and our donation will be going towards funding further research and supporting patients. At HSFC we aim to help women who are going through cancer treatment to freeze and preserve their eggs, allowing them to have the option of exploring a family once they have completed their treatment.”

At HSFC, we know just how daunting and nerve-racking it can be to seek advice on fertility issues, but our family-run clinic aims to provide all our patients with personal and caring treatment. Uniquely, we offer complete continuity of care, ensuring you are always seen by the same consultant. To help ease any stress, we do our best to offer flexible appointments, including evenings and if necessary, weekends.
