As of Monday, 5th September 2022, our staff are no longer required to wear a facemask while at work. This excludes occasions where a face mask is medically necessary, such as in theatre. We are still actively encouraging our staff members to ensure they are taking leave from work if they feel unwell or exhibit symptoms of Covid-19.
Our promise to you
Our priority is to ensure all our patients and colleagues are kept as safe as possible. While there is no longer a requirement for Manchester Donors to explicitly consider COVID-19 in our statutory health and safety risk assessments, it is important that, as a clinic, we continue to comply with obligations relating to health and safety, employment and equality duties.
This means our clinic will need to operate a bit differently. However, we assure you that you will still receive the highest standard of care and warm welcome that you are used to from our team and clinic.
New and Existing Egg Donors
We are accepting new egg donors and will offer initial appointments virtually or over the phone. Our Donor Team can answer any questions you may have or give support and advice about your egg donor treatment. Counsellors are always on hand to support you and will be offering virtual appointments to ensure you get the help and advice you need. Please contact our Donor Team on 0161 300 2734 to arrange your appointment.
When you attend the clinic for appointments we ask that you do not bring other people or children with you to these appointments as we are trying to keep the number of people in the clinic to a minimum where possible.
Hand sanitiser gel will be available at points around the clinic and a rigorous cleaning regime will be carried out throughout the day, paying particular attention to handrails, door handles and areas with a high touch point.
There are things you can do to help too during your time both in and outside of the clinic. We ask you to be aware of not touching your mouth, nose and eyes, make sure you wash your hands for at least 20 seconds, particularly before eating or handling food and avoid close contact with people who are unwell. These will all help to prevent the risk of infection.
