If you are planning a pregnancy or have been trying to have a baby and it is taking longer than hoped Melanie is here to support you. Many people don’t appreciate that it can take up to 12 months to conceive so if you have been trying less than this a referral may not be required.

If you think it would be helpful to come and discuss your concerns or have investigations to ensure there is no reason why you cannot not fall pregnant Melanie supported by her dedicated fertility nurse would be happy to see you. We are happy to see patients referred through their General Practitioner or who contact us directly. Please bring any relevant investigations or information regarding your periods to the consultation.

Why go private?

This is a very personal choice. I believe it allows you to be seen by the Consultant of your choice at a time of your choosing in a dedicated gynaecology suite supported by specialist nurses. The appointment times are generous allowing you time to discuss your problem. It is always possible to see you quicker than in the NHS.

If you require surgery you will receive consultant delivered care at all times and have the opportunity to recover in a private room. We are happy to put together package prices for self funding procedures.


Appointments are available in our weekly outpatient clinics which run on Wednesdays and Thursdays at Chichester Nuffield.

Emergency appointments are available by arrangement with Shelley Whitbourn on 01243 753023.

Where possible we try to be flexible to accommodate your wishes and ensure you have easy access to excellent care with minimal disruption to your life.
