Attending During COVID-19 Pandemic

An important message from our family to yours:

If you would like to speak to one of the team, feel free to contact us on 0818 333 310 /


We are an essential service and will remain open during all restriction levels. 

We are following guidelines from the HSE and ESHRE and doing everything we can to ensure our Clinic remains COVID-19 FREE. Please do bear with us as we implement our safety policies, and have patience if things take a little longer. Your fertility and your safety are our priorities.

When you attend the Clinic, you must attend alone (unless you are specifically asked to attend as a couple or bring a companion), hand sanitise, social distance, and wear a mask at all times during your visit. The team may suggest additional measures to reduce your risk and keep both you, and all at the Clinic, safe from COVID-19. We would ask you to be vigilant and report any changes: we are all in this together and must do all we can to protect each other as a community. 

Please DO NOT attend the Clinic in person if you experience any symptoms or have been in contact with anyone who has COVID-19. If you have any symptoms or have had any contact, please contact the Clinic. 

We have an additional consent form for patients accessing treatment during the COVID-19 outbreak. It outlines your responsibilities as a patient and we will ask you to read and sign it, and to update us if there are any changes in your status. Treatment cannot proceed without this form.


From the Waterstone family and all the team.



Coronavirus spreads through droplets. It can be transmitted from person to person if you come into contact with an infected person who is coughing or sneezing near you, or if you touch surfaces that someone with the virus has coughed or sneezed upon (the virus can live on surfaces for days).

There are a number of practical tips for keeping safe from Coronavirus:

  • follow the recommendations from the Chief Medical Officer and government about social distancing
  • wash your hands properly (for 20 seconds and foaming a lather) and regularly
  • avoid touching your face
  • if available, use a hand sanitiser
  • use disinfectant wipes to regularly clean items you come into contact with often, such as your phone, desk phone, and door handles
  • regularly clean off surfaces with alcohol-based disinfectants
  • avoid shaking hands with others


If you develop symptoms of coronavirus, avoid contact with people by self-isolating.

Phone your GP or emergency department (do not enter the GP or ED clinic). You will be put in contact with your local Department of Public Health staff who will give you information and advice.

More information is available on the HSE website  

If you have any concerns or would like any further information or advice, please contact us on 0818 333 310 or
