We can also provide you with one to one advice and support, so if you don’t feel like a group is right for you but want to chat, please get in touch. Don’t struggle alone, we are here to support you.

 

Are you having treatment at Wales Fertility Institute?

Wales Fertility Institute offers a full range of assisted reproduction treatments and the highest standard of care.

Our highly qualified team of consultants, embryologists, nurses, laboratory, administration and counselling staff offer a friendly and supportive environment to patients seeking fertility advice and treatment to help them reach their goal of becoming a family.  

 

We understand how many patients have waited for quite some time to be able to access our services.  Some patients have been through the secondary care [gynaecology or urology] services prior to being referred into WFI and it may seem that it has taken a lengthy period to obtain referral to our specialised services.  Due to the COVID19 pandemic experienced this year our waiting time for an initial consultation has now increased to approximately 15 months from the date of receipt of your referral.  If we are able to accept your referral ie. you are able to be considered for assisted reproduction treatment based on the commissioners eligibility criteria [CP38 www.whssc.wales.nhs.uk] then your name[s] will be placed on our initial consultation waiting list.

 

Once you are offered an appointment to be seen you will then begin the access to treatment pathway – there is no real further wait for treatment from this point and once all relevant or required investigations have been completed [for example, ultrasound scan, semen analysis and blood screening investigations] you will be called for treatment within approximately 4-6 months to ensure all required investigations are in place before we are able to commence your treatment.

 

We understand that the wait for treatment can be a difficult time for patients and once you have been referred into our service and accepted for consideration of treatment you will be able to access the services of our counselling team to help guide you through the process.

 

Further information regarding support available to patients can be found under the counselling pages.
