To provide safe and effective treatment in combination with minimising patient and staff risk of COVID- 19, we have introduced many changes to our clinic environment, as well as our ways of working. While we are doing all we can to begin your treatment as soon as possible, the restrictions under which all fertility clinics are now operating means we have reduced capacity at this time.

We are working to ensure all patients that had fresh treatment stopped/interrupted will have a timeline as to when their treatment can begin by the 3 August 2020.  

If you have had treatment stopped/interrupted and have not been contacted by one of our team by 3 August 2020 please contact us on 01382 496475 or email acusecretarial.tayside@nhs.net

 

Patients that were due to start treatment (for example had received AMH results) but had not started will be contacted by letter in the first instance. 

Your letter will include specific information about COVID-19 and a consent form, which must be read, signed and returned to us in the stamped addressed envelope before we can arrange treatment. 

 

Our independent counsellor has been offering counselling throughout the pandemic.  If you require support at this time please contact us to arrange an appointment with the counsellor.   We have been working closely with Fertility Network Scotland who you can also contact for support, advice or further information. Telephone: 01294 279162 Mobile: 07411752688.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding

 

 

100 Women 2019

We have some great news to share this morning – BBC have published their `100 Women 2019’ list and it includes our own Sarah Martins da Silva - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-50042279

We are all delighted. Sarah is in great company on the list, with the likes of Greta Thunberg and Megan Rapinoe featured alongside a host of global names.

Sarah, who works in the Dundee University School of Medicine as well as here in the ACU, is featured for her work in the area of male fertility. She will be speaking about her work at a high-profile `100 Women’ event BBC are holding in Delhi next week.
