The Fertility Clinic at London Health Sciences Centre is happy to announce we will be reopening with a phased approach starting Monday June 8th, 2020.
The safety of our patients and staff is our top priority. Our goal is to minimize the spread of COVID-19 while maintaining the needs of our patients. Many of our scheduling practices have therefore been modified as a result of COVID-19 related safety policies and guidelines. Please be patient with us as we do our best to provide care in an organized and safe manner during this time.
New consultations are already occurring via telephone with The Fertility Clinic physicians.
Diagnostic testing services including ultrasounds and blood work will begin on Monday June 8th, 2020.
Day 1 phone calls for frozen embryo transfer (FET) procedures will begin on Monday June 8th, 2020.
Day 1 phone calls for IUI and IVF/ICSI treatment will begin on Monday June 15th, 2020.
All visits will be by appointment only. No walk in appointments will be permitted.
All staff are required to wear a mask. All patients are strongly encouraged to wear a mask or face covering from home.
All new patient appointments, including fertility counseling, will be conducted via telephone or virtually.
Upon arrival to the hospital, everyone (including staff) will be screened. This includes assessing your history of COVID-19 connections and asking about any COVID-19 symptoms you may be experiencing. We will ask you to perform hand hygiene once you enter the hospital.
As per LHSC’s visitor policy, partners and other support persons cannot accompany you for your visit in the clinic or wait in the clinic waiting room. This policy is changing frequently and this website will be updated if there are any major changes to the visitor policy.

Show up on time. Not early, not late. This is to ensure all patients are able to adhere to social distancing measures.
For all procedures (i.e. IUI, OPU, ET/FET) - upon arrival please stay in your vehicle until you are called to proceed to perimeter screening.
When possible, male partners producing specimens will be asked to produce off site.
If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have symptoms of COVID-19 please let us know immediately.
We understand that some of these changes may be difficult, but they are necessary to keep everyone safe and to follow the direction of The Ministry of Health at the provincial and federal level.
