Following the Government announcement on October 31st of a second COVID-19 National Lockdown, we want to reassure all our patients that the Agora Clinic remains open and continues to offer all investigations and treatments in our COVID-safe environment. In his statement, the Prime Minister has confirmed that all medical treatments will continue as normal.
The HFEA has reconfirmed on 2nd November that a closure of fertility clinics is not anticipated provided they continue to have a strict treatment strategy in place to ensure a COVID-safe environment for their staff and patients at all times.
In these unprecedented times, we want to reassure our patients that our Agora COVID-safe strategy has been very successful with no reported cases of COVID-19 in any of our patients or staff since we reopened on 12th May and we have continued to achieve very high success rates of over 40 % in all age groups for fresh IVF cycles and over 50% in all age groups for frozen IVF cycles.
We always follow the latest guidance from UK professional bodies and will continue to respond to any new changes locally and nationally and adapt our policy accordingly. Our staff levels are high and none of our staff are being redeployed to work in the NHS.
This is a short video is to remind you of the key points of our current COVID-safe strategy at the Agora.
