We are pleased to announce that we are now able to continue with our Patient Information Evening events online using Microsoft Teams. This means you can still access the information you need prior to IVF treatment whilst remaining safe.
If you would like to join the live presentation please register your details here. Once you have registered you will receive an email to join the event which will enable you to view and listen to the presentation and you can also send in questions at the end.

We were very pleased to hear the latest statement from the HFEA on Friday 1st May, allowing all fertility services to apply to resume services. These applications can be made after 11th May 2020. It is our intention to begin to reopen our clinical services in the next few weeks.
As with all other fertility services, we at Yorkshire Fertility will be submitting our planning arrangements as soon as possible to outline how we can reopen to offer high quality care to our patients, whilst maintaining their safety and the safety of others.
Our dedicated team are committed to working together with our partner organisations so that we can meet these requirements and begin to contact our patients regarding their ongoing care.
Any service updates will be shared via the website and social media platforms. We would ask that you avoid contacting us at the moment, and rely on website announcements (www.yorkshirefertility.co.uk)
We thank you all for your patience at this difficult time, but please be reassured that we are all working together towards the same goal, and look forward to seeing you all soon.
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.
