Support for people who are planning to start or add to their families on the Fylde Coast has received a significant boost because of a new partnership between the specialist fertility centre, Fertility Fusion, and Lytham St Annes-based, Advanced Medical Screening.
By creating this partnership, people on the Fylde Coast, whether funded by the NHS or as private patients, will be able to access some fertility services closer to home at Advanced Medical Screening. Services available through the clinic include fertility consultations and ultrasound scans, as well as supporting fertility treatment cycles.
A leading fertility service in the North West, Fertility Fusion, which is based at Wrightington Hospital near Wigan, has clinical experts with more than 25 years of experience. The service is renowned for high success rates, low waiting times and access to state-of-the-art facilities, as well as pioneering testing and treatment options, leading to high levels of patient satisfaction.
Mr Philip Harris, Consultant Gynaecologist and Clinical Lead at Fertility Fusion explained:
‘Every fertility journey is different, but we believe all of the very best options should be made available to prospective families, and by working together with Advanced Medical Screening, we will be able to help people in the area take that first step. We are here to support people through every part of their journey, and the easier we can make it for people to have as clear a path as possible, the better.
Our waiting times are one of the best in the region, but we are always looking for new and innovative ways to make our services as accessible as possible. We’re doing this by giving people on the Fylde Coast the chance to have local consultations and initial investigations with the highly experienced team at Advanced Medical Screening and Fertility Fusion.’
Mrs Santosh Mohindra, Consultant Sonographer at Advanced Medical Screening, who is an advanced practitioner in fertility, obstetric and medical ultrasound with over 20 years’ experience, added:
‘We’re delighted to be working with such a well-respected fertility centre like Fertility Fusion, and what’s more important is the combined expertise and compassion during what can be a very sensitive time in people’s lives.
If you are thinking of starting a family, or adding to your family and need our support, we are here for you. You can contact the clinic directly to self-refer, or simply by asking your GP for a referral letter. It’s so important that our consultations are convenient to you, so we offer a mixture of face-to-face and virtual appointments, depending on what’s best for you.’
