The Team - South

OPU collection facilities are based a few miles from the main branch, at Wolfgar Farm, Cheriton Bishop. It has good access from the A30 and accommodates day patients. Residential patients can also be arranged, but due to TB in our area, it takes a little more planning.

Danielle and Tony are always more than happy to discuss the embryo collection service with you. Telephone 01363 772860 or follow this link to our website for more information
