All fertility clinics were able to re-open from May 2020, provided that they could demonstrate to the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) that they could offer a safe service for patients and clinic staff during the ongoing pandemic. The HFEA has advised that, as of 31 January 2021, a small number of clinics have been affected by staff redeployment and other COVID-19 related issues. This has resulted in less than 10% of clinics either temporarily suspending services, re-prioritising activity, or working with other local clinics to ensure patient treatment is not affected.
HFEA provides information for patients showing the full list of clinics which have been authorised to resume treatment, which is available at the following link:
The HFEA has advised that activity figures for Coventry and West Midlands are broadly consistent with the average England activity figures.
