Another plane, this time to Glasgow. Last time I was here was for a wedding in November. This time it’s to visit GCRM Glasgow. Established in 2006 by the three directors Professor Richard Fleming, Dr Marco Gaudoin and Paul Mitchell. The three were driven to set up the clinic by the desire to build a service around the needs of the patients, with a focus on patients rather than on the operational needs of the clinic.
In my chat, you will be hearing from Dr Marco Gaudoin, Pat Ambrose, Clinical Care Manager and Chris Adam, Acting Lab Manager and Nicole Gibson, Deputy Lab Manager at GCRM Glasgow.
If you don’t know anything about me – I’m Natalie and I host The Fertility Podcast which I created in September 2014, once pregnant with my first child having had fertility treatment. I’m not an expert in fertility – my background is in radio (hence making podcasts) so I’ve combined my life experience with my work experience to put a voice out there for infertility issues.
Finding out you need to have fertility treatment is massive, it’s overwhelming. So when it comes to choosing a clinic it can feel like another stress, will it be the best place for you. Of course you can look at the HFEA website for success rates – that’s what we did. If there had been a podcast about the different clinics when I was choosing I would have definitely listened to it. The world of fertility is fascinating and the people in it are truly remarkable and I hope you find my chats with these experts as interesting as I did.
