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

 

 

Update for Patients

We understand this has been a challenging and distressing time for our patients and would like to reassure you that the clinic is working to ensure all the necessary protocols and procedures are in place to resume services as soon as possible.  

 

On Monday 18th May 2020 we will submit our application to the Human Fertilisation & Embryology Authority (HFEA) to restart our services.  Following approval from the HFEA clinic staff will begin to contact patients.  Please be assured we will be in touch as soon as possible.
