We are delighted to be able to confirm that Ninewells Assisted Conception Unit has been given permission by the HFEA to recommence fertility treatments. We are aware many of our patients are keen to commence their treatment and have already been in touch to find out about when they can start treatment.

To provide safe and effective treatments in combination with minimising patient and staff risk of COVID-19, we have introduced many changes to our environment and ways of working. We understand you will be very keen to have specific dates for starting treatment, however we need to put processes in place to keep everyone safe.  While we will do all that we can to begin your treatment as promptly as possible, the restrictions under which all fertility clinics are now operating means we will have to monitor the number of cycles carefully which will reduce capacity at this time. We will initially only offer frozen embryo transfer treatments to test the changes we have introduced

Be assured, we will make contact with you as soon as possible to outline the plans in place for when we expect to be in a position to offer you treatment.

If we had to postpone your treatment and you do not receive a call from us straight away, please do not worry, we will contact you as soon as we can provide a clear update on restarting your treatment.

As we re-commence our services from next week our phone lines will be extremely busy so we would ask for your patience to allow our teams to speak to as many patients as possible.

We have been working closely with Fertility Network Scotland who you can contact for support, advice or further information.  Telephone: 01294 279162  Mobile: 07411752688

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding
