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: 21st May 2020 re CORONAVIRUS (COVID 19)

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

We are delighted to be able to confirm that Aberdeen Fertility Centre has been given permission by the HFEA to recommence fertility treatments. 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.
