Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital has welcomed a new addition to its family. The fertility clinic, which is run by Nuffield Health’s consultant gynaecologist Mr Julian Pampiglione and fertility nurse Jackie Coleman, opened in April.

IVF/ICSI (in-vitro fertilisation/intracytoplasmic sperm injection) is provided via the link to the Woking Nuffield IVF programme, where Nuffield Health Bournemouth fertility clinic are registered as an official HFEA (Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority) satellite.

Mr Julian Pampiglione has been a consultant for more than 24 years and has been a part of the Nuffield Health Bournemouth hospital since 1993.  Mr Pampiglione specialises in gynaecology and fertility and offers comprehensive male and female fertility investigations, local monitoring of fertility cycles including IVF/ICSI.

Jackie Coleman who has worked as a fertility nurse for more than 15 years, recently joined Nuffield Health Bournemouth hospital to work alongside My Pampiglione at the fertility clinic. Jackie said: “There are several factors to consider when deciding to seek out fertility advice. Young couples should try to fall pregnant for at least a year before visiting their GP, unless aware of a prior problem such as PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease).

“For those in their late thirties and struggling to conceive we would advise you visit your GP for basic investigations sooner rather than later, but there are no hard and fast rules. Same sex couples and women who wish to conceive on their own should make an appointment at the fertility clinic when they’re ready, taking age into consideration.”

People can ask to be referred to the Nuffield Health Bournemouth fertility clinic through a GP or an appointment can be made directly via Customer Services on 01202 375032.
