Welcome to Aberdeen Fertility Centre

The Aberdeen Fertility Centre has been at the forefront of fertility treatments for more than 30 years. Once a diagnosis has been made by our caring team of expert clinicians and embryology staff, we can offer a range of treatments across our Centre to suit your individual needs.

UPDATE: 27th May 2020

Aberdeen Fertility Centre has been permitted by the HFEA to restart treatment.

We will make contact with you as soon as possible - we do not have our nursing team back as they are still needed to provide care in other areas of the hospital. Please allow us to make plans and contact you when we are in a position to offer treatment. We have started phoning patients that were cancelled prior to having frozen embryo transfer to set up cycles in the order patients were cancelled. Once we have more nursing staff back in the service we will contact patients having unstimulated IUI treatment. The website will be updated regularly to advise when we will be contacting patients to start fresh IVF treatment.

We are aware many of our patients are keen to commence their treatment and have already been in touch to find out about when they can start treatment. To provide safe and effective treatments in combination with minimising patient and staff risk of Covid 19 we have introduced many changes to our environment and ways of working. We understand you are very keen to have specific dates for starting treatment cycles however we need to put processes in place to keep everyone safe. While we will do all we can to begin your treatment as promptly as possible, the restrictions under which all fertility clinics are now operating means we will have to monitor the number of cycles carefully which will reduce capacity at this time. We will be contacting patients in the next couple of weeks to outline the plans in place for when we expect to be in a position to start each individual’s treatment. All patients will be provided with an opportunity to have a consultation using remote systems to ensure everything is in place prior to commencing a treatment cycle.

We will make contact with you as soon as possible

If we had to postpone your treatment and you do not receive a call from us straight away, please do not worry, we will contact you as soon as we can provide a clear update on restarting your treatment. As we re-commence our services from next week our phone lines will be extremely busy so we would ask for your patience so our teams can speak to as many patients as possible.

We have been working closely with Fertility Network Scotland who you can contact for support, advice or further information. Telephone: 01294 279162 Mobile: 07411752688.

Update from HFEA 27th April: announcement to extend the statutory storage period to 12 years instead of the 10 years to address concerns for those patients with sperm,eggs or embryos in storage which are reaching expiry. The HFEA will be preparing guidance for Centres as soon as possible to assist with the practical implementation of the new regulations. As soon as we are provided with information we will update the website. The press release can be found here www.gov.uk/government/news/storage-limit-for-frozen-eggs-sperm-and-embryos-extended-during-coronavirus-outbreak
