Since 1991, the Assisted Conception Unit (ACU) at Guy’s and St Thomas’ has helped hundreds of people with fertility problems to conceive and we are known worldwide as an innovator in fertility treatments. We will look after and care for you throughout your time with us.
Our Assisted Conception Unit always puts you first, from the moment you walk in to our state-of-the-art unit on the 11th floor of Guy’s Hospital and start your fertility journey.
You’ll feel instantly at ease in the unit’s relaxing, inviting and contemporary environment. Our dedicated labs, fully equipped theatres and well-designed procedure rooms create a fertility clinic unlike any other within an NHS or private London hospital.
You can be sure of the best possible medical advice and support from our world-renowned clinicians and our experienced and expert teams, who are passionate about helping fulfil your desire for a baby.
Our pioneering treatments have featured on the BBC and other TV channels, because we are constantly researching and innovating the field of fertility, especially IVF.
We are also the largest, most successful clinic in the UK for specialised preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) treatment, and we’re licensed to carry out stem cell research.
Whatever your treatment, we’ll guide and help you every step of the way, giving you the highest standards of care and attention.

Temporary closure of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Assisted Conception Unit
Please note that in addition to the annual two week temporary closure of our embryology laboratory for cleaning, this year we have extended this period by a further two weeks to allow for a programme of works focussed on restructuring our processes. This includes allowing us to make important improvements, including embedding our new state-of-the-art IT system.
A small set of core services, including pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and fertility preservation, will continue to run as usual, but all other fertility treatment will be stopped during the month of December, and restarted in early January.
During the temporary closure, patients and referrers can still get in touch with us via the usual contact details . If you have any queries, or would like to provide any feedback that can help us continue to improve the care and service that we provide to our patients, please do not hesitate to contact us.
