Fertility Consents

ACU, Ninewells will soon be replacing traditional paper-based consenting with a digital consenting system. Fertility Consent is a secure online platform that enables patients to remotely access the relevant medical and legal information to provide informed consent and digitally sign consent forms for their fertility treatment, thus eliminating the need for paper information leaflets and consent forms.  Fertility Consent provides a complete library of Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) consent forms and individual clinic consent forms that are automatically allocated to each patient and partner according to their treatment and personal circumstances. The platform also provides a library of materials and easy-to-understand videos that explain each fertility treatment and HFEA form in a clear and engaging way. 

We will be introducing this for all new patients over the coming weeks and for return patients as we progress.  To enable us to provide this service we require up to date contact numbers for all patients, if you have been recently referred or are due to have an appointment with the ACU, Ninewells soon please contact us to provide us with up to date contact details for each partner on 01382 496475 or alternatively email tay.acusecretarial@nhs.scot

Introduction to Mindfulness –

6-week programme starting Monday 5th April 6.30pm-7.30pm

Mindfulness can help us to build resilience, stability and connection during these very difficult times. It can help us to find balance and even joy amidst uncertainty and worry. Through the practice of mindfulness we learn how to take care of our stress so that it doesn’t overwhelm us and in so doing we learn how to take care of each other.  

This free Mindfulness 6-week programme is for those people who are currently on a fertility journey and struggling to conceive. This is a live and interactive introduction to mindfulness, via Zoom for 1 hour each week. It is suitable for beginners and for those who have already some mindfulness experience.

Many participants have remarked on the feeling of connection and intimacy that they have experienced from attending the online meditations and classes since the start of the pandemic.

This course is free to attend but places are limited to 20 and registration is essential.

There will be a short orientation zoom meeting on Monday 29th March which you will need to attend to complete registration and the 6 weeks programme will start the following Monday 5th April, running until Monday 10th May.

To register, please email sarah@fertilitynetworkscotland.org or;

‘The pandemic has been very isolating for me, as for many others, and it has been very positive to make new friends via the network.  The mindfulness course was genuinely life-changing for me. I've tried counselling many times and whilst useful, it really doesn't compare to what I have gained from Veronica's course.’

 

Thank you so much, I truly enjoyed and have learnt and taken so much from it. It is changing my life. And you are wonderful Veronica, thank you so much.’

‘Thanks for providing such a great class. I am so grateful for it. Veronica is a fantastic teacher’
