Our Dorchester satellite clinic is staffed by fertility specialists and doctors who provide the best level of care. At TFP Wessex Fertility, we take everything one step at a time.

Where is the satellite clinic?


TFP Wessex Fertility’s Dorchester satellite clinic is located at The Dorchester Clinic,  5 Hamslade Green, Poundbury, DT1 3DP. The clinic is easily accessible and has free parking. Please see ‘Directions’ and ‘Parking’ below for more information.





Who can use the satellite clinic?


The Dorchester Clinic is available to self-funding patients and NHS funded patients who find the satellite more convenient to access than Southampton.


Apart from surrogacy patients, you have the same treatment options available as at the Southampton clinic and receive the same first class care.


TPF Wessex Fertility are in partnership with NHS Poole andrology service to offer semen analysis appointments from the Dorchester clinic.




What appointments can take place at the satellite?


The following appointments can take place at the satellite:

  • Semen analysis appointments

  • Doctor consultation

  • Scan appointments

  • Consenting appointment

  • Pregnancy scans

  • Follow-up medical consultation


All patients will have to attend Southampton for their egg collection and embryo transfer appointments (or insemination if undergoing IUI). Some patients may also require additional procedures (e.g. cyst aspiration, sperm freeze, surgical sperm retrieval) which can only be done at the main clinic in Southampton.



How will using the satellite affect my treatment?


The aim of the satellite service is to make treatment more convenient for you. Our Dorchester satellite is run by Wessex Fertility consultant Dr Guy Fender and supported by Wessex Fertility nurse Sarah Powlesland. All team members work closely with Southampton, ensuring good communication and an excellent standard of compassionate care. Appointments are conducted in line with Southampton’s protocols and all scan and blood test results are sent to the main clinic so the decisions made about your treatment our chances of success are the same whether you choose to have your appointments in Dorchester or Southampton.
