The Greater Manchester area has a long tradition in reproductive medicine, stretching back to Walter Heape in the 19th century and Bob Edwards who grew up and went to school in central Manchester. Patrick Steptoe famously practiced in Oldham, and the pioneering IVF work leading to Louise Brown was carried out by Edwards, Jean Purdy and Steptoe at Dr Kershaw’s Cottage Hospital in Royton, the world’s first successful IVF clinic.
