The Agora Team have done it again! We are honoured and privileged to have been recognised as the Best Fertility Clinic in Sussex

Keeping you safe

The safety of our patients and of our staff remains our highest priority and we have implemented strict controls to keep everyone safe.

Why choose the Agora Clinic?

The Agora Clinic is the largest provider of fertility services in Sussex, with the highest live birth rate per embryo transfer of any IVF clinic in London and the South East of England. To date over 2,800 babies have been born to Agora parents.

We make it our goal to support everyone who wants help to have a family, regardless of their gender identity and sexual orientation. The Agora is recognised as the leading authority on LGBT+ parenting in the UK, having helped hundreds of couples and individuals.

With fertility clinics in Brighton, Eastbourne and Worthing we provide the full range of fertility services in Sussex, and work closely with NHS CCGs in West Sussex and East Sussex.

We know that, for many people, the journey to becoming a parent is challenging, both medically and emotionally. It can sometimes involve invasive procedures, uncertainty over the outcome and, in some cases, difficult financial decisions. That’s why you need a team you can trust with the expertise and compassion to support you in your parenting journey.

We believe that our commitment to exceptional patient support sets us apart, and this has been recognised through a number of awards.

While over 80% of the IVF cycles in the UK are now provided by a few large companies who own a chain of profit-driven IVF clinics, the Agora Clinic is proud to remain an independent provider of fertility services in Sussex.

Honest, transparent pricing

We are committed to transparent and competitive in our pricing.

We don’t push the unnecessary add-ons that are offered in some clinics, which can lead to false hope and significant financial loss. The Agora Clinic do not select patients based on their chance of getting pregnant to boost our success rates.
