Patients are usually referred to University College London Hospitals (UCLH) or Whittington Health (WH).

If assisted conception is offered, the fertility clinic will refer to tertiary care, usually the Centre for Reproductive and Genetic Health (CRGH) or the Hammersmith Hospital. GPs cannot refer directly to tertiary care.
