A fertility clinic is to move to the National Maternity Hospital’s (NMH) new location at the St Vincent’s campus.

Its clinical director, Professor Mary Wingfield, has brushed aside fears that treatments like IVF won’t be allowed there due to its ownership by a religious order.

Instead she argued that the move by the Merrion Fertility Clinic will “benefit our patients”.

The clinic – where NMH master Rhona Mahony is a voluntary director – is currently based on Lower Mount Street, and pays rent to the NMH next door.
