Fertility News

As patients are becoming increasingly concerned about COVID-19 and its potential to affect their treatment plans and their general health, we will post regular updates to the website. Please see below for more information.

Follow the latest news and developments in the world of fertility.

COVID-19 – CORONAVIRUS ALERT

The clinic remains open between 9am – 1pm to provide ongoing support to patients over the phone until further notice.

We are taking every precaution to minimise the risk to our patients and staff.

New rules are now in force now: you must stay at home. More info and exemptions at gov.uk/coronavirus

STAY AT HOME. PROTECT THE NHS. SAVE LIVES.

What you need to do:

Stay at home

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work
  • Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

As a clinic, we are carefully following the coronavirus pandemic and UK government measures to contain and mitigate the spread of the virus.  We are monitoring updates issued by the Department of Health and Social CarePublic Health England, NHS, and taking advice from our medical advisory bodies British Fertility Society (BFS) and the Association of Reproductive Clinical Scientists (ARCS).

Our priority is for the health and safety of our patients and staff. We are doing everything possible to support them and to keep them safe.

We have been informed by our medical advisory bodies, BFS, ARCS and HFEA to stop seeing patients to help slow the progression of the disease and to help health services cope with the demand.

We have a contingency plan in place, which follows best practice guidance from Public Health England, in terms of personal hygiene, cleaning, self-isolation, and protective equipment.

We are taking the following actions to deal with any potential implications of the coronavirus outbreak: 

If staff are exposed or have symptoms they are immediately self-isolating for 14 days.

Patients have been advised that all appointments have been canceled but the clinic remains open to provide ongoing support to patients over the phone.

For those patients already having treatment, we suggest considering deferred pregnancy with egg or embryo freezing for later embryo transfer.  Please call the clinic should you have any concerns.

Please let us know immediately if you have symptoms or are advised to self-isolate. For more up to date information please follow the links below.

Stay at home

Government guidance is for everyone, including children. It advises on social distancing measures we should all be taking to reduce social interaction between people in order to reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Stay at home, practice social distancing and do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital if you have:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

This will help to protect others in your community while you are infectious.

Self-isolate and take Paracetamol, not Ibuprofen. Drink lots of fluids including hot drinks to dehydrate.

The NHS will not be testing people who are self-isolating with mild symptoms.

You do not need to contact NHS 111 to inform them of your symptoms.

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Fertility Events

Open evenings

We hold our very popular free open evenings every month - although we often add extra dates due to high demand. They are suitable for all individuals or couples who are thinking about their fertility now or for the future, or if you are considering fertility treatment.

Open evenings are held in our spacious waiting room and start promptly at 7.00pm with a presentation by a member of our expert team. In addition, we provide demonstrations of fertility drugs and can provide up-to-date success rates on a one-to-one basis. We have plenty of free parking and refreshments are provided.

Attending one of our open evenings gives you the opportunity to chat with our specialists, view the facilities and discover more about the fertility services we offer.

Click here to book your place, or call 01992 78 50 60

Our open evenings are very popular but we keep the numbers limited so that you can get more out of the event and have time to chat with us on a one-to-one basis, so please book your place in advance.
