New owners for Complete Fertility Centre

Complete Fertility Centre is now owned and operated by Complete Fertility Ltd (a subsidiary of Virtus Health Ltd).

Introducing Complete Fertility Ltd

The two directors of Complete Fertility Ltd, a professor in reproductive medicine and a senior embryologist, were part of the original team to co-found Complete Fertility Centre Southampton and they will continue their work at the centre.

The new parent company, Virtus Health Ltd, is the market leading Assisted Reproductive Services provider in Australia and Ireland. It focuses on driving innovation and advancing the science and technology behind reproductive medicine to provide the best possible chance of creating a family.

What this means for patients

  • We will continue to offer the same high-quality fertility service to both private and NHS patients.
  • Renewed investment in the service will enable us to develop and provide innovative services in modern facilities, ultimately improving patient experience.
  • Our patients’ embryos/sperm/eggs have been stored within the strict guidelines of the HFEA Code of Practice. These protocols will continue to apply and there will be no change to the careful way in which we look after our patients’ samples whilst under our care.
  • CFC Ltd complies with current national legislation and regulations in relation to data protection as outlined in the HFEA 8th Code of Practice. As such, past patient records are kept for at least 30 years after treatment and will then be appropriately destroyed. However, any records containing donor gamete information will never be discarded.
