Women undergoing IVF treatment with the NHS will no longer have to face Covid restrictions from next week.

That means they can bring partners to their doctor appointments.

The change comes four months after people were allowed to visit all Glasgow Royal Infirmary wards.

To date, patients undergoing IVF have reported feeling unsupported and overwhelmed during consultations.

NHS Glasgow and Greater Clyde said there had to be a “balance struck” between protecting patients and providing the best possible care.

Glasgow Health Board also apologized for any “inconvenience or inconvenience” caused by the directive.

A spokesperson said: ‘While partners were able to accompany the patient to certain appointments such as egg retrieval and pregnancy scans to ensure we could maintain a high level of safety and maximize the number of patients we were able to see, we are ‘restricted partners’ Participation in other, more routine appointments.

“We are aware of the difficulties this may have caused for couples using our services and we apologize for any difficulty or inconvenience this may cause.

“However, we are pleased to announce that starting Monday, August 8th, all restrictions on the assisted conception service will be lifted and partners will be able to attend all appointments again.”

During the peak of the pandemic, there were restrictions on how long partners could stay on the ward after giving birth.

Those who had successfully conceived were also required to go to appointments alone.

But those restrictions were lifted a few months ago.
