24th March 2020
It is with regret that we have to inform you that Yorkshire Fertility will be ceasing any active fertility services until further notice. This is as a result of the COVID-19 (Corona) outbreak.
This action is in line with HM Government and professional body advice including the British Fertility Society (BFS), Association of Clinical Embryologists (ACE), the European Society of Human Reproduction & Embryology (ESHRE) and the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).
We are temporarily ceasing all new outpatient referrals, but continuing with follow-up reviews by telephone or Video link (VPC) to ensure patients receive their results and discussions on future treatment. We are currently in the process of contacting all patients who have a face-to-face appointment to convert them to telephone or video consultations.
We are unable to offer any ultrasound ovarian cycle tracking for treatments such as Letrozole. We therefore STRONGLY recommend that you discontinue this immediately.
Patients who have already started their IVF treatment and/or have appointments for IVF related ultrasound scans will be managed individually and contacted by the team.
We have been very reluctant to take these steps, and we really do appreciate the impact that this may have for all of you, our patients. We understand what this service means to you all, and can only hope that we can return to you as soon as possible.
Please keep checking our website www.yorkshirefertility.co.uk and we will endeavour to keep you updated with news of our reopening.
From all the staff at Yorkshire Fertility,
In the following weeks Mr Martin DeBono will be holding live Question & Answer events online.
Please be reassured that your details will be kept completely anonymous, your questions will only be viewed by our team and will not be published anywhere but may be read out by Mr DeBono, he will include only first names.
