Attending Clinic During COVID-19

IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO READ – UPDATED August 2022
This is a very challenging time globally to be seeking and providing fertility care. COVID19 remains a threat to our patients and our staff. We have always encouraged patients to seek vaccination before pursuing treatment, and with the increasingly high infectivity rates in the community, we are now strongly recommending that unvaccinated patients delay beginning treatment until the completion of their vaccination schedule.
In tandem with this, we are continuing measures in our clinics to keep our patients and staff safe. Although many restrictions will and have been lifted in society, we will continue to follow the below measures at the Clinic:
- Please wear a mask when attending the clinic.
- Partners can join consultation appointments and pregnancy scan appointments.
- You must attend certain appointments alone. This includes routine scan visits and procedures (except Egg Collection)
- The use of cameras or video recording on phones is strictly prohibited in the clinic (particularly in clinical areas, such as the scan and procedure rooms).
We will review these policies periodically. We have a duty of care to you as our patients and to our staff, and we must have policies to minimise the risk of COVID19 transmission so that the Clinic can continue to provide care. This disease remains dangerous, and there is a huge increase in infectivity in the community at the moment. The team who work in the clinic are highly skilled and would be difficult to replace if they were incapacitated through Covid infection.
