Reopening of fertility services

We are pleased to announce that a clear exit plan was agreed at our meeting of the board on 30 April 2020 and fertility clinics can apply to reopen in the week commencing 11 May 2020. 

Our Chair, Sally Cheshire said: 

“I am pleased that the HFEA has agreed fertility clinics can apply to reopen from 11 May. Our priority throughout the pandemic has been to consider how treatment could resume quickly and safely for as many patients as possible and our clear plan sets out how clinics can treat and care for patients safely during the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.

"I know that the closure of clinics has been extremely distressing for patients and this will be good news for those wanting to resume treatment and have the opportunity to try for their much longed for family.”
