“Alison was lovely to deal with. We felt like she explained things clearly and was honest about the process and our chances. She was pragmatic but also really warm. She had been recommended to us and we would recommend to anyone else hoping to start or grow their family. “

    Dr Alison Taylor is a Consultant Gynaecologist and Subspecialist in Assisted Conception and Reproductive Medicine at The Lister Fertility Clinic. She developed a keen interest in Subfertility and Assisted Conception after joining the team at St Thomas' Hospital as a research registrar in 1991 in the early days of IVF, when a new clinic was being established. After completing an MD research thesis on 'Parthenogenetic Oocyte Activation as a model for embryonic preimplantation genetic diagnosis' and being the first trainee to complete Subspecialty Training in Reproductive Medicine at Guys and St Thomas, she was appointed Consultant and Senior Lecturer in Gynaecology and Reproductive Medicine at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals in 1998. There, she ran the Assisted Conception Unit, was the clinical lead for Gynaecology, and was involved in organising the teaching programme for medical students.

    In 2005 she joined the team at the Lister Fertility Clinic and now has almost 30 years of clinical experience in IVF and Assisted Conception. She enjoys working as part of a multi-disciplinary team dedicated to providing excellent care to individuals or couples with subfertility including more complex cases and recurrent implantation failure, recurrent miscarriage, polycystic ovaries, reduced ovarian reserve, those needing treatment with donor sperm or eggs, and those wanting fertility preservation through egg or embryo freezing. She tries to be empathetic and supportive, while providing clear evidence based guidance about different investigations and treatment options available.

    At home she enjoys time with her family, playing the piano, ski-ing, cycling, gardening, baking and long walks with the family labrador!
