About the British Fertility Society

The British Fertility Society (BFS) was founded in 1972, by a small group with a common interest in infertility.

We have grown alongside the development of our specialty and now actively promote the sharing of knowledge, further education and raising standards of practice.

The Society welcomes members from disciplines including andrologists, counsellors, embryologists, endocrinologists, nurses, and other professional groups working in this field.

Our aims are to:

  1. Promote high quality practice in the provision of fertility treatment.
  2. Provide a common forum for members of various disciplines having an interest in the science and treatment of infertility.
  3. Promote high quality scientific and clinical research in the causes and treatment of infertility.
  4. Provide professional leadership in the provision and regulation of infertility services.
  5. Promote the increase of NHS funding for and equity of access to fertility treatments.
