Paul Rainsbury was educated in London, before completing his medical training at Trinity College, Dublin, qualifying in 1969 after which he practised as a gynaecologist in Ireland until the early 1980s.

After several years as a gynaecologist in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, he returned to the UK in 1987, initially as Deputy Medical Director of Bourn Hall Clinic, Cambridgeshire before being appointed Medical Director of its associate clinic, the Hallam Medical Centre in London's Harley Street.

During his years with Bourn Hallam, the world's first infertility treatment group, Mr Rainsbury was perhaps best known for his work with spinal-injury patients, helping both tetraplegic and quadriplegic males to achieve fatherhood despite their severe physical disabilities.

In 1992, Mr Rainsbury joined BUPA, being appointed Medical Director of its Reproductive Medicine unit based at the BUPA Roding Hospital, Ilford where he maintained both his spinal-injury fertility programme and other mainstream fertility treatments, including ICSI for the management of severe male infertility.

His decision to introduce a gender selection programme, using in-vitro fertilisation and embryo biopsy, was taken in response to international demand, and is a natural extension of his commitment to developing infertility services.
