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.

Patients who had not started treatment but are on a waiting list for treatment will be receiving will be receiving information in relation to COVID and a consent form to return to us.  

Patients who are awaiting their first appointments will be offered an appointment to attend for blood tests and sent all of their consent forms. After the results are reported we will arrange a consultation with one of our doctors to discuss your treatment plan. Please do not attend the hospital if you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19. 

If you have any queries please contact us by emailing acusecretarial.tayside@nhs.net

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.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding
