"Do not go here for fertility treatment if you..."

About: Chelsea & Westminster Hospital / Gynaecology

I was referred to chelsea and westminster for fertility treatment as an NHS paper and began drug therapy (clomid). I was shocked to find out that I would be charged £600 per cycle for follicle tracking despite being an NHS patient, but assumed that this was the case everywhere in the NHS. After two cycles I transferred to UCLH, and found that they didn't charge for follicle tracking with clomid, and in fact offered better care (e.g. follow-up tests to check whether ovulation induction had been successful). There is no information about charges on the website, so I'm leaving this review in case it's helpful to other people trying to decide where to go for fertility treatment.
