Tommy’s National Centre for Miscarriage Research clinics

Tommy’s National centre for Miscarriage Research runs specialist research clinics in Birmingham, Coventry and London. These clinics provide specialist care for women who have experience of recurrent miscarriage.

Tommy’s National Centre for Miscarriage Research runs recurrent miscarriage clinics in 3 different sites in the UK.

At our recurrent miscarriage clinics, women and their partners are given the opportunity to take part in research trials, accessing cutting-edge treatments and tests. 

“The staff at the Tommy’s clinic at Birmingham Women’s Hospital seemed to understand how we felt and didn’t diminish what we’d been through. For the first time we felt hope. In the end, Tommy’s gave us more than hope; they gave us our rainbow baby.”

Kirsty from Preston had 3 miscarriages before she was referred to Tommy’s National Centre for Miscarriage Research clinic in Birmingham. Read Kirsty’s story here.

How can I get referred to a research clinic?

Our clinics accept patients who have had 3 miscarriages with a referral from a GP from anywhere within the UK. The clinics work hand in hand with the research centres by offering women the opportunity to have new tests and take part in new trials.

Tommy’s view is that all women should get a referral for further investigation after 2 miscarriages and our clinicians and centre directors are working towards this goal. However, until it is made normal NHS-funded practice, we are unable to offer this as standard across the clinics.

Currently, our clinics in Coventry and Birmingham have an arrangement that allows women with 2 miscarriages to be referred, but then only from the local area.

How to get referred:

  • Talk to your GP, explain how you are feeling and ask to be referred as soon as possible.
  • There is not a specific referral form that needs to be used; your GP can use their own.
  • When your GP makes the referral, please ask them to select the recurrent miscarriage clinic at one of the hospitals outlined above.
  • Your referral can be made on the basis that the Tommy’s centre offers tests and treatments not offered by your local hospital. This can be the reason for your request for out-of-area referral.

Please note, that the criteria outlined below for referrals to Tommy's clinics situated within the hospitals are stipulated and managed by the hospitals themselves.
