EBEA 2017 Finalist Badges8

Simply Fertility has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Excellence in Science and Technology category of the Essex Business Excellence Awards 2017.

Organised by the Trinity Mirror Group, the awards celebrate success and recognise the achievement of innovative individuals and companies across Essex who are putting the region on the map while making a positive contribution to the local community.

What the judges saw

Simply Fertility is the South East’s newest and most state-of-the-art fertility centre which opened its doors in Great Baddow, Chelmsford in May this year.

It has invested £2 million in the brand new IVF clinic, which brings together for the first time the latest IVF techniques, dedicated staff and most state-of-the-art equipment all under one roof.

It offers an elegant, boutique environment where patients can receive all their fertility treatment, care and support without having to travel further afield for tests or specialised techniques as they have in the past.

In particular, the introduction of an Embryoscope and pioneering Time Lapse Technology enables fertility specialists to monitor individual embryos in the laboratory at 15 minutes intervals.  Using photographic images, so the embryos are not disturbed, it gives patients the greatest chance of achieving pregnancy.

Simply Fertility’s entry also highlighted other examples including: Harmony Prenatal Test, Frozen Embryo Transfer, Insemination – IUI, Surgical Sperm Retrieval, IVF/ICSI, Freezing, Fertility Preservation, Genetic Screening and various advanced techniques.

Centre Manager Sarah Walt said: “We are delighted to have been shortlisted in Essex Business Excellence Awards 2017, just six months after we opened the doors of our new clinic to patients.  We wanted to bring the latest in science and technology to patients hoping to start a family, offering first class fertility services right here in the heart of the Chelmsford.”

Sarah will join Laboratory Director Andy Glew at the pre-awards networking evening at Chelmsford Cricket Ground on 8th November and the gala awards dinner itself in Romford on 29th November.
