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.
