Karen Pooley

Andrology Service Lead

I manage a small team of highly specialised scientists and together we provide diagnostic semen analysis tests, preparation of semen samples for use in treatment, male fertility preservation and a donor sperm bank

I have 27 years of experience in diagnosis and treatment of Male Infertility, and I have a particular interest in sperm donor recruitment and recipient matching. I have been involved in the running of the NUH Life sperm bank since 1997!

I’m very fortunate to absolutely love my job – it’s a real privilege to be involved in helping people create a family. Outside of work I love to bake and cook, which I try to counterbalance with Zumba, Pilates and a new found enjoyment of personal training!
