South Pole adventurer is helping couples overcome infertility in MK

TV adventurer and dad-of-three Ed Coats is heading up Oxford Fertility’s Milton Keynes clinic at Whaddon Way Medical Centre.

Aman who has raced to the South Pole with James Cracknell and Ben Fogle has joined the team at Oxford Fertility, and is heading-up its Milton Keynes Clinic at Whaddon Medical Centre.

Former GB track and field decathlete Ed Coats competed in the race to the South Pole for BBC Two’s ‘On Thin Ice’, jointly led a ski expedition to the Geographic North Pole for Channel 5’s ‘North Pole Ice Airport’, has swam the English Channel and completed various adventure races including the Original Mountain Marathon.

But the dad-of-three’s day job is helping couples conceive. With degrees in Medicine and Human & Aerospace Physiology from the University of London and a Medical Law degree, he undertook specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the South-West of England and completed his Doctor of Medicine (MD) at the University of Nottingham.

Ed has won national and international awards, is widely published and is regularly asked to write for books on fertility.

He now joins the Oxford Fertility team, running its Milton Keynes clinic. The satellite clinic is based at the Whaddon Medical Centre in Bletchley, as well as offering scans at Ultrasound Direct in Stony Stratford.

It gives NHS and private patients in Milton Keynes local access to a clinic that has been supporting couples for 35 years and has helped welcome more than 13,000 babies into the world.

Commenting on the move, Ed said: “I’m proud to be part of a team that holds a 5-star rating from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) and achieves success rates ahead of the national average.

“With access to the widest range of treatments, we can advise on the best route to match a patient’s needs, from natural IVF, IVF, genetic analysis or surrogacy.”
