Did we answer all your fertility questions today?
If you still feel you need more guidance and support, you can book a FREE 1-2-1 discovery meeting to talk through the options available to you.
Our priority is to ensure all our patients and colleagues are kept as safe as possible. While there is no longer a requirement for Manchester Fertility to explicitly consider COVID-19 in our statutory health and safety risk assessments, it is important that, as a clinic, we continue to comply with obligations relating to health and safety, employment and equality duties.
This means our clinic will need to operate a bit differently. However, we assure you that you will still receive the highest standard of care and warm welcome that you are used to from our team and clinic.
As of Monday, 5th September 2022, our staff are no longer required to wear a facemask while at work. This excludes occasions where a face mask is medically necessary, such as in theatre. We are still actively encouraging our staff members to ensure they are taking leave from work if they feel unwell or exhibit symptoms of Covid-19.
Our Patient Teams can answer any questions you may have or give support and advice about your treatment or future treatment. Our Doctors and Counsellors are also on hand to offer you virtual and in-person appointments. If you would like to speak to our specialists for advice or support time, please get in touch with our In-Patient Team on 0161 300 2730.
Following a policy update, we will now allow partners to accompany patients into the clinic when having egg collections.
The process will be as follows:-
On the day of egg collection, the patient will come to the procedure suite on their own, and their partner can either wait outside or get a coffee in our upstairs waiting room. This is because patients need to relax whilst having the Temazepam for it to work, so we advise they relax on their own.
Partners should be aware that it could be 2 hours before they can come to the procedure suite.
Once the patient is out of theatre and settled back into her room, a member of the ward team will come and collect her partner.
You can find information surrounding Covid-19 on the HFEA website here. If you have been advised to have the Covid-19 vaccine and have any concerns or questions, please speak to your fertility consultant or one of our senior fertility nurses for further advice.
We have everything in place to ensure we will give you the best possible care in the safest way. Everyone at Manchester Fertility is committed to protecting our patients and colleagues, and we appreciate your understanding in these difficult circumstances.
We will continually monitor the situation and promise to keep you updated as soon as anything changes. If you would like any further advice and support, please see our contact details below for each patient group.
