Please read: Code of Conduct for Patients & Staff During Covid-19 Pandemic

It is our aim at The Sussex Downs Fertility Centre to provide a safe working environment for patients and staff during this pandemic.

To assist in providing this, all persons accessing the services of the centre are expected to observe the Code of Conduct highlighted below.

The SDFC Code of Conduct’s main aim is that people attending the centre, whether in person or by telephone, should behave in a manner that respects the rights of others and the centre environment.

The following is required of everyone visiting the centre:

  • Follow the social distancing guidelines and wear masks in public places/ during your appointment and continue throughout your treatment
  • Complete the questionnaire on this page before your visit or if the circumstances in your household change
  • Inform the centre immediately via telephone if your circumstances/condition changes or anyone close to you develops any of the symptoms by calling 01323 410333. Please do not visit the centre until you have spoken to someone at the centre
  • Wear a mask and use the hand sanitiser when you enter the centre
  • Maintain the 1-2m distance in the centre from other patients and visitors where possible

Any person acting in an unacceptable manner can be asked by a member of staff to stop behaving in such a way and to observe the Practice Code of Conduct.

If a person repeatedly fails to observe the Code of Conduct, the staff could ask a patient to register elsewhere.

This screening questionnaire should be completed no later than 48hrs prior to your appointment.

If you’ve already submitted a screening questionnaire, we may ask you to resubmit a new questionnaire to provide more up-to-date information.

PLEASE NOTE: We understand that having treatment is a sensitive and emotional time for our patients, we are asking all patients to attend their appointments alone to keep the number of patients in the centre down to a minimum to reduce the risk of possible infection. We are also asking patients to self isolate after your stimulation and until your embryo transfer. When you are in the centre please bring and wear a mask and follow the social distancing guidelines. Thank you for your understanding.
