Nottingham-based Care Fertility has acquired Nuffield Health’s Woking Assisted Conception Service (ACS), backed by private equity house, Silverfleet Capital.
Operating since 1997, Care Fertility is an independent provider of fertility services in the UK and a global presence in the treatment of infertility, genetic diagnosis and screening techniques and associated fertility preservation procedures. It operates clinics and satellite facilities in 19 UK locations.
It is Care’s third bolt-on acquisition since Silverfleet Capital acquired a majority stake in the business last year and follows on from the acquisition of Tamworth-based IVI Midland and the Countess of Chester Hospital’s fertility clinic.
Care chief executive David Burford said: “We are delighted that Nuffield Health Woking ACS has now become part of the Care group. We feel that the clinic’s culture and ethos are closely aligned with those of Care Fertility UK, and the whole team are looking forward to working with our new colleagues to take Woking ACS into the future. There are exciting times ahead as we expand the specialist fertility services we provide. The huge support that the Care team provide enormously enhances our abilities to assist those patients needing our help.”
Law firm Browne Jacobson advised Care Fertility.
