Coronavirus/ COVID- 19

Coronavirus Covid-19: Statement from ReproMed Group incorporating ReproMed Ireland and Galway Fertility Clinic. 

At this time we are following guidelines from the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology who have advised that we can once again assist our patients in getting pregnant. This means that our clinics are slowly reopening and we can begin to offer a range of treatments again in a staged basis. 

We do however have to be extremely aware of the very real and present risk that is such a big part of our daily lives. COVID-19 remains the greatest public health issue that any of us will have experienced in our lifetimes, and we must continue to adhere to strict social distancing guidelines when we are treating our patients. This means that we will be carrying out services differently than we have before and we will still need to prioritise our first patients as we had planned to do before this announcement was made.We will keep you all up to date as we have been doing via social media and our website, as we continue to work tirelessly to re-structure our clinics to facilitate your treatment as soon as possible. Please bear with us as work to ensure your safety and that our staff. We will try to respond to all queries and requests as quickly as possible but some delays should be expected.  


If you wish to begin planning for you first steps to treatment we are here to help.  We are now offering video and phone options for new appointments.
