London Fertility clinic advice

We have been trying to conceive since an year now and have decided to go private to get initial consultation and tests done. NHS was taking too long for appointments.
Will appreciate advice on which fertility clinic to choose. Our insurance provider is AXA, if that matters.
We know nothing around and are new to the country. From looking online, we have come with the following options. But I will be happy if you recommend any other clinic as well. Thanks.
These are the clinics I found looking online - Lister Fertility Clinic
- Care Fertility clinic
Thanks a lot.

The Evewell is highly regarded on here.

Good luck 🙂

Check out the hfea website for the statistics (although these can be and are sometimes manipulated by clinics).

Also, if you don't have ilr, pr or British citizenship (not sure if pre-settled or eu status is included) you aren't eligible for fertility treatments on the nhs. Some ccg interpret the guidelines to also include no testing, so going private is definitely the way forward!! Sorry, it's just you mentioned being new to the uk...

I don’t think axa will cover fertility treatment? I am with them and read the fine print in the t&cs but you might have a different policy.
I’ve not had experience of the clinics you mentioned, but a couple of friends didn’t like Care at all.

Thanks everyone.
@robs20, we upgraded our plan to include fertility treatment.
