"Semen analysis"

About: St Mary's Hospital (London)

Anything else?

Tax payers money hard at work! Shocking experience, have to leave a message on machine for call back to make an appointment - 10 weeks to get an appointment which then took another 2 weeks to get results back which was inconclusive as the analysis was not done on the sample within the required time of 60 mins but instead was tested 6 hours later! After 4 months of messing around will need to have the test done privately with a 2 day turnaround at a cost of £160 so fertility treatment can be started without wasting another 4 months to go through the whole thing again. Good work NHS.
