James set up a dedicated fertility clinic, Cheshire Fertility in 1997 for the rapid assessment and treatment of patients. Following the early success of the clinic and using his extensive experience in the field, he was able to provide a full range of assisted conception treatments including the provision of IVF and ICSI.

James has recently been appointed as a consultant in reproductive medicine at the Hewitt Fertility Centre based at the Liverpool Women’s Hospital, one of the largest IVF units in the country.

In December 2011, James moved premises and opened Cheshire Fertility and Gynaecology in Nantwich with the aim of  providing an outstanding clinical service to all patients in a community setting. As an independent provider, patients have far greater choice regarding their appointment options, continuity of care by an experienced consultant and diagnostic tests (ultrasound and blood tests) performed on the same day as their appointment. Surgical procedures are performed by him at one of the local BMI private hospitals.
