Semen analysis service moving to Cambridge IVF

Monday 29 September 2014

As of the 1 October the semen analysis service provided by the pathology laboratory at Addenbrooke’s Hospital will cease and be replaced by a service facilitated by Cambridge IVF.  

This change is designed to streamline service provision by CUH and deliver the highest possible standards of patient care and service efficiency. The modern and well equipped facilities at Cambridge IVF include specific private rooms dedicated to sample production for the use of patients which link directly to the diagnostic andrology laboratory.

Cambridge IVF is currently providing this service to general practitioners and clinicians in secondary care in the following regions:

  • East and North Hertfordshire
  • RAF Lakenheath
  • Cambridge and Peterborough (from 1st October 2014)
  • Self referrals are also accepted from self-funding patients.

Cambridge IVF has provided detailed information for the following procedures:
