Highest Success Rates in South East and London

The Agora is proud to have the best results in Sussex and London with birth rates well above the national average.

Exceptional Patient Support

Individualised treatment and support programs from our experienced and compassionate team.

Why choose the Agora?

The Agora 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 2,500 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.

Your ‘boutique’ clinic for fertility services in Sussex

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 team is proud to remain an independent provider of fertility services in Sussex.

Our staff have a huge passion for their work. That’s why, in 2019, we received the Best Customer Service Award at the Sussex Business Awards.

Led by our Founder and Medical Director, Carole Gilling-Smith. Carole is actively involved in all our day-to-day activities, ensuring that patients receive the very best care and feel part of our Agora family.
If you’re not in the clinic every day, dealing with patients, how can you hope to understand the true impact of childlessness and the isolation and devastation created by infertility?” Carole Gilling-Smith, Founder and Medical Director.

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. And we don’t select patients based on their chance of getting pregnant to boost our success rates.
