Helen Kendrew

Helen Kendrew is the Clinic Director at CARE Fertility Bath. She has worked at the clinic in Bath for over 20 years and is a registered nurse with wide experience in the field of fertility. As well as supporting and caring for patients going through treatment she has held a number of professional committee posts including the British Fertility Society, the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology, the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority and the NICE Fertility Guideline Development Group.

“We always strive to offer our patients the best chance of creating their family”.

It is our absolute pleasure to announce that our wonderful CARE Bath Clinic Director, Helen Kendrew, has been awarded an honorary membership of the British Fertility Society (BFS).

Having been an active member of the society for many years, Helen was presented with this tremendous accolade at the Society’s AGM in Edinburgh on the 10 January 2020.

Helen was first elected to the BFS Executive Board as a nurse representative in 2003, and has since contributed to the scientific community through her numerous other professional committee positions at BFS, the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology, the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority and the NICE Fertility Guideline Development Group.

Helen has also worked at CARE Fertility Bath for over two decades, supporting and caring for patients while leading the clinic from strength to strength. Her depth of experience is just one of the reasons Helen is considered one of the leading figures in nurse and fertility leadership.

After her many years’ dedicated work with the BFS and wider nursing community, it is truly fitting that Helen be recognised with this prestigious commendation. We warmly congratulate her on this well-deserved recognition, and wish her even more success in the future.

 

From Helen Kendrew:

 

 “I am honoured and privileged to be awarded this honorary membership, following in the footsteps of nurse colleagues Liz Corrigan and Jane Denton, who blazed the trail for nurses within the specialist area of assisted conception.   I am a keen supporter of the society, which has afforded me so many professional opportunities over the years working alongside scientists, doctors, patient representatives and, of course, my many fabulous nurse colleagues.  BFS is a truly multi-disciplinary society, working hard to provide professional, accessible, clear, evidence-based advice to its members as well as providing information to patients, the press and the general public.  Long may it continue to thrive.

 

I have always found my colleagues, near and far, to be generous with their support, which has given me the confidence to develop and engender a warm and caring atmosphere in our clinic, where there is no doubt that the patient is truly at the heart of what we do”.
