We know that driving back and forth to a clinic for frequent appointments can be a challenge, especially if you live some distance away. To ease the stress and limit your travelling time, we have established satellite services in Edinburgh & Dundee, where you can have some of your consultation and scanning appointments.
The following appointments can take place at the satellites:
- Doctor consultation
- Nurse planning appointment
- Down regulation scan appointments
- Follicular tracking scans
- Pregnancy scans
- Follow-up medical consultation
Patients still need to attend Glasgow for their egg collection and embryo transfer appointment (or insemination if undergoing IUI or DI). Some patients may also require additional procedures (e.g. cyst aspiration, sperm freeze, surgical sperm retrieval) which can only be done at the main unit.
How will using a satellite affect my treatment?
The aim of a satellite service is to make treatment more convenient for you. Our satellites are staffed by highly experienced nurses and doctors, ensuring good communication and an excellent standard of care.
Appointments are conducted in line with GCRM’s protocols, and all scan and blood test results are sent to the main unit so the decisions made about your treatment, and your chances of success, are the same whether you choose to have your appointments in Edinburgh, Dundee or Glasgow.
