Byline: Liza Williams

CHARLES KINGSLAND has been helping childless couples realise their dreams. The consultant has treated thousands of men and women, and enabled thousands of their offspring to be born into the world.

But he says the rewarding feeling never gets old: "It is great.

"It is such a nice feeling going around town to see all of our offspring that we have helped to create, you still get a buzz.

"That is why we all work here, we all get tons of job satisfaction."

Mr Kingsland is Clinical Director at the Hewitt Centre in Liverpool Women's Hospital.

The unit has recently gained planning permission for a pounds 5m extension. That will enable it to treat 2,000 patients a year and become the largest IVF centre in Europe. It will house a modern embryology laboratory, sperm bank and egg freezing equipment, and dedicated recovery services. An extra 600 treatment cycles will be undertaken a year after the work.

The father-of-three, who turns 50 this year, was set on becoming a GP after graduating from Liverpool University in 1982. But after spending some time in gynaecology and gaining various experiences throughout the country working as a doctor, he came back to the city in 1989, when the unit was first set up.

"Back then, we had no NHS funding, we had to charge patients money to repay the university which funded us. We had a staff of three, now we have a staff of 75," he said.

"In our first year, we saw 90 patients, next year we expect to treat 2,000.

"We got the first NHS contracts in 1991 and treated 100 patients."

The unit now provides both NHS and private treatment.

Mr Kingsland, who lives in Wirral, is pleased about the extension because it will enable more patients to have the opportunity to access treatment and have children.

He says the feeling he gets from helping people in this way cannot be matched: "Christmas is very nice for us, a lot of patients will pop in with babies and children.
