Michael, our CEO, set up the Herts & Essex Fertility Centre (formerly known as the Essex Fertility Centre at Holly House Hospital, Buckhurst Hill) in 1989. He has almost 34 years’ experience working exclusively in the field of IVF and Assisted Conception since starting in 1984 within the NHS in Oxford. With two other Gynaecologists in 1985, he was a founder member of the Fertility & IVF Unit at the Wellington Hospital in London, under the directorship of Professor Ian Craft, who was famous for his pioneering work in IVF, and was the second person in the UK to be responsible for an IVF birth after Mr Patrick Steptoe. The Unit quickly became the largest and busiest IVF unit in the world at that time, performing over 3500 IVF cycles per year. Michael was Deputy Medical Director when he left in 1989 to start his own independent IVF centre.
