About us

We’ve helped thousands of hopeful parents to start and grow their families. 

CARE Fertility is a world-leading fertility group founded by Professor Simon Fishel, Dr. Ken Dowell and Dr. Simon Thornton in 1997. Since then, we’ve used our tailored treatment plans and dedicated support networks to help more than 45,000 patients to start or grow their families.

Leading the way in fertility

Our clinicians and scientists have always been at the forefront of IVF science and development; in fact, Simon was part of the team involved in the birth of the world’s first IVF baby, Louise Brown, in 1978. Simon has also published over 200 papers and edited four books on fertility research and was awarded the Honorary Fellowship from Liverpool John Moores University in 2009 for his "outstanding contribution to science and humanity"

In the decades since, our specialists have worked to pioneer more effective fertility treatments and support more patients than ever before, introducing techniques like CAREmaps and C4M2 testing that can help to improve our patients’ chances of success.  Learn more about our science and technology here, or discover how we’ve contributed to the world of IVF with our CARE firsts.  

Investment in research

Other than our commitment to research, it’s our approach that sets us apart. Your need for family is always at the heart of our work, and we do everything we can to give as many people as possible the chance to have a family of their own. At CARE, we’ll always put you and your dream first, and that’s why we work so hard to listen to and treat every patient individually. You can find out more about what we stand for here, or read about our values. 

I always thank CARE. I wouldn't have a family if it weren't for them.
