Milton Keynes Fertility
Whaddon Medical Centre
25 Witham Court
The satellite is available to all patients, both NHS and self-funding, who are concerned about their fertility and wish to seek advice about options, tests and IVF. Patients currently undergoing fresh IVF or frozen embryo replacement cycles can also use the satellite service for scans and blood test appointments.
The aim of the satellite service is to make treatment more convenient for you. Our Milton Keynes satellite is staffed by a highly experienced team who offer an excellent standard of care. Appointments are conducted in line with TFP Oxford Fertility’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 Milton Keynes or Oxford.
To ensure the safety and wellbeing of all of our patients and staff we have adapted how we operate the service and now offer friendly Covid appointments as follows:
All our Doctors consultations are done virtually either via a video call or telephone.
All your consent forms are on an online consent platform and can be completed in the comfort of your own home.
Nurse planning appointments are done virtually via a video call or telephone.
Scans and blood tests can be booked with our team on site on set days, or at the main clinic in Oxford for greater availability.
Counselling appointments can also be done via a video call or telephone.
All patients will have to visit TFP Oxford Fertility for their egg collection and embryo transfer appointment. 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 in Oxford.
