Before you start
You must attend two appointments before starting IVF treatment; firstly to discuss the implications of your intended treatment and then to complete the necessary consent forms.
If you have are planning treatment with your partner you must both attend each appointment.
The first appointment will be a video consultation with one of the nursing team to discuss the physical, emotional and practical implications of your planned treatment. The second appointment will be in person at the fertility clinic to complete all of the necessary consent paperwork and to arrange your treatment dates.
If you are a single woman seeking treatment, you might find it helpful to have a friend or family member attend the appointments.
Fertility Consent is a UK based company that specialises in providing online consents specifically for fertility clinics. Fertility Consent is a secure online platform, which provides patients with consistent and engaging information about their individual treatment, which they can review in the comfort and safety of their own home before electronically completing and signing their clinic consent forms and, where required, regulatory consent forms.
Newcastle Fertility Centre staff register patients on Fertility Consent through our own secure clinic dashboard. Fertility Consent then allocates each patient’s individual educational videos, clinic information, regulatory consent forms, and clinic consent forms based on their specific demographic and treatment details.
You will receive a text message directing you to the Fertility Consent platform to review information specific to your treatment and complete the relevant consent forms. If you are having treatment with a partner, you will both receive a text message. You must review the information provided on Fertility Consent and sign the allocated consent forms before we can offer you a date to start treatment.
