**** EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT – YOUR FERTILITY JOURNEY CAN CONTINUE 21.04.20 ****
Today Prime Minister Scott Morrison confirmed that the suspension on elective surgery and importantly, IVF will be removed following the ANZAC Day weekend. This has come about as a result of the low incidence of COVID-19 in Australia and the lower than expected demand on our hospitals.
We are delighted by this news and thrilled that our patients can now resume, or commence their fertility journey.
The Monash IVF team are ready and waiting to help you move forward. If you want to start treatment and have not yet seen a fertility specialist, call 1800 628 533 to make a telehealth appointment. If you are continuing treatment, call your fertility nurse to determine what this means for you.
Please be assured that a range of additional initiatives have been implemented to minimise the risk of transmitting COVID-19 between our patients, our team and the broader community.
We know it has been an incredibly upsetting and anxious time for many of you. We want to thank all of our patients for your ongoing understanding and patience during the last few weeks. We so look forward to seeing you all again!
The Monash IVF Team
