Due to the Covid-19 situation and extraordinary pressures on the NHS acute services, Ninewells Assisted Conception Unit has taken a difficult decision to suspend all fertility treatment for the foreseeable future.

Some of the reasons are

  • Unknown effects of Covid 19 on pregnancy.
  • Avoidance of patients entering hospital environment for elective procedures and minimisation of transmission of virus.
  • Avoidance of complications of treatment which would place patients at unnecessary risk.
  • ACU staff getting redeployed to other acute services.
