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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Today was a hugely emotional day as we went back to Dundee to say thanks to the people who brought Charlie to life. It must be the most amazing feeling in the world to go to ‘work’ and know that you are creating life and turning dreams into reality and we hugely appreciate every single person involved in this process.Charleane Anne, Fife
Our first attempt ended in tearful failure and at that point my wife made up her mind that if the next attempt did not work (something she did not tell me at the time) she would not attempt again as the pain would have been too much to bear. Whether she would have changed her mind we will never know as the pregnancy test joyfully came back as a positive. It was one of the best moments in our life, although soon to be eclipsed by similar ones on an almost daily basis when our beautiful baby Poppy Anastasia was born .M and A , Fife
I had my egg collection yesterday and I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you. From start to finish of this experience your team have been absolutely fantastic. From giving me all the information I needed, answering my questions and putting me at ease before and throughout my procedure. The staff in the unit were all absolutely wonderful, and made my experience so positive!Nancy & Jake, Edinburgh
Our son was born on 10 February in the Ninewells labour suite after we had IVF treatment in May 2017 at the assisted conception unit in Ninewells. We wanted to say a massive thank you to the assisted conception unit, and all the maternity staff for the excellent care given which made our journey a great experience.Claire and Louise, Dundee
I felt that I had to contact you today to mark the NHS turning 70.
We spent 4 long, painful years waiting for our son to arrive and who knows where we would be now if it's wasn't for the wonderful care and support we received when we were treated at the ACU at Ninewells in 2016.
We will never, ever be able to find the words to thank the amazing staff for what you have done for us, you have changed our lives completely and we will always be so grateful.
Thank you to all at the ACU, we are eternally grateful, Dundee
