Mr Nick Brook

MBBS MRCOG

Expert in reproductive medicine and infertility.

In the field of reproductive medicine, you learn very quickly that every patient journey is one the medical team must share. Few areas of medicine demand such a team effort and close mutual support.

A Consultant Gynaecologist and Subspecialist in Reproductive Medicine, I completed my research post working alongside Lord Professor Robert Winston at the Hammersmith Hospital, before moving to Guy's and St Thomas's Hospital. Today I help lead the fertility services at University Hospital Southampton - a significant centre of expertise with fantastic technical facilities – as well as undertaking private consultations and case management at Nuffield and Spire private hospitals in the local area.
