The Embryology team at the Hull IVF Unit would like to reassure all patients that have eggs, sperm or embryos stored with us that their safe storage and continual monitoring is of paramount importance. That’s why, during the Covid19 outbreak, the Embryology team will still be maintaining their duty of on call and attending the Unit on a regular basis to ensure the safe storage of your gametes and embryos.
Please continue to check your post and phone if your gametes or embryos are approaching their consent expiry dates. The Embryology team will need to be in touch with you in this situation to ensure we have the appropriate legal consent in place to maintain storage in order to comply with the HFEA.
If you have been advised to self isolate for 12 weeks and are worried consent might be an issue for you, please contact the unit.
We send all our very best to our patients and please stay safe.
