Our current situation with the COVD19 global pandemic has changed the landscape for fertility patients and fertility treatment providers. We understand how upsetting, worrying and frustrating this is for you as a patient.
But there is good news, the governing bodies for assisted reproduction have felt immense pressure to review the guidelines on suspending treatment. And we are delighted to say that both The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and The European Society for Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) have both issued new guidelines on the reopening of fertility clinics.
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) are also reviewing guidelines this week and will announce a date that treatments can resume. This is fantastic news and we will be publishing the full recommendations for patient and staff safety.
However, as the global challenge of COVID19 continues, this will be a slow process as patients try to access care. There is also the impact on the economy to factor in for affordability of treatment. Please can you take just 5 minutes to complete our patient survey.
