Assisted Conception Unit – coronavirus update (April 2021)
Due to increased demand on the hospital because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we are having to make significant changes to our services.
Our Assisted Conception Unit is open and offering fertility treatment at this time.
Please check our website for ongoing updates in the first instance before trying to contact us. We are here for you and will aim to return your call or email as soon as possible depending on urgency. If you have any queries, you can contact us by emailing ACUPersonalisedCare@gstt.nhs.uk or calling 020 7188 2300.
Your safety and that of our staff is our priority. Please bear with us during this difficult time.
Keeping you safe
There are a number of ways we are keeping you safe including measures put in place to maintain social distancing and to reduce the number of patients in the clinic through the use of telephone on video consultations and by increasing the time between appointments.
We have introduced screens at reception areas and increased the frequency of cleaning in the clinic. When you are in the clinic, you will be asked to wear a face covering.
Please understand these measures are to keep you and our staff safe by reducing the risk of spreading infection.
Before your appointment
Before attending the clinic, we will take you through a short health questionnaire. We will also send you a detailed information leaflet entitled ‘changes to your fertility treatment in ACU and COVID-19’, and a form that you will need to sign before we can start your treatment. If you have been invited for a vaccine and are planning on or are currently undergoing fertility treatment, find out more about COVID-19 vaccines and fertility FAQs here.
If you have had any COVID-19 symptoms in the past 14 days, or have been in contact with someone who has symptoms or has tested positive for COVID-19, please do not attend your appointment and contact us to rearrange.
