Wolfson fertility clinic re-opening
We’re pleased to announce that we have re-opened the Wolfson fertility clinic to welcome both NHS and private patients. As part of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, we have put in place stringent new processes and procedures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.
If you are registered with us, a member of our team will be in touch to explain the next steps for your treatment. If you have any queries relating to your treatment please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Or if you would like to make a general enquiry please call 020 3313 4411.
Thank you for your patience and we look forward to welcoming back to the Wolfson fertility clinic
Before your appointment
Referrals to this service should include details of any partner, if you are seeking NHS funded treatment together. It is important if you have a partner/spouse and you are seeking treatment together, that you both attend the appointment. You are also welcome to ask for a chaperone. This is to enable us to conduct the consultation in full and agree any subsequent treatment which may be appropriate.
You will be sent some information ahead of your first appointment, which will detail more about what to expect at your initial consultation.
It is helpful if you can bring copies of results from any completed investigations (either from your GP or any previous fertility assessments) to your appointment. You should also bring with you a list of any medications, over the counter or prescribed, and any vitamins or herbal supplements that you are taking.
During your appointment
We are a teaching hospital, so medical students may be present for some appointments. If you do not wish to have them in the room please let the nurse or doctor know and the students will be asked to step outside.
At our clinics, waiting times are typically around 30 minutes, and most appointments take about 30 minutes. At your initial appointment the doctor will review your history, may examine you and will arrange for further investigations and tests. These could include ultrasound scans or blood tests.
After your appointment
We will send your GP a clinic letter summarising your consultation and any plans for tests or treatments. We will send you a copy of this letter, and if appropriate, we will offer you a follow-up appointment.
Since 21 August 2017, those exempt from charge under Regulation 10 (health surcharge arrangements) or 11 (transitional arrangements) are not exempt from charge in relation to assisted conception services. Checks may need to be completed to ensure you and your partner, if you have one, are eligible for assisted conception funded by the NHS. If you have any queries with relation to this please contact the overseas office.
