Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update on fertility treatment at Fertility Fusion

Through our own consideration, guidance by the Government and the British Fertility Society; the Fertility Fusion clinic at Wrightington Hospital has made the very difficult decision to put Fertility treatments on hold at Fertility Fusion due to the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

This also includes suspending all diagnostic services including all female tests, male semen testing as well as all post vasectomy testing.

We apologise for any anxiety and stress this decision may cause. We have not made this decision lightly, but our priority must be your safety and support.

We urge all of our patients past and future to stay safe and remain in touch as the situation changes. 

If you have been affected by this, we would encourage you to speak with a member of our fertility team by calling 01257 256251 or 01942 264018. Fertility Fusion also has a Facebook page which we will also keep updated. Unfortunately, at the moment we’re facing technical difficulties with our general (Fertility Fusion) email inbox, of which we’re working to fix.

For all male testing enquiries please call 01942 264226 or email lesley.walsh2@nhs.net
