IMPORTANT PATIENT UPDATES
Updated : 18.05.20
PRE APPOINTMENT ATTENDANCE – COVID 19 TRIAGE
For your safety, and the safety of our staff and other patients, Effective from Monday 18th May, all patients will be asked to complete a Covid Triage Form PRIOR to arriving for your appointment. For your convenience and maximum hygiene, you can complete this form on our website www.kafertility.ie/covid-19-triage
There is no need to complete a new form for each appointment – the initial form will be reviewed with you at your appointment by our medical team each time you attend. PLEASE NOTE YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND YOUR APPOINTMENT UNLESS THIS FORM IS COMPLETED PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT.
Your temperature will also be scanned at reception on arrival.
Again, we would ask that you wait in your car and phone reception on arrival as social distancing in a busy waiting room is very challenging. Only the patient may attend as we cannot facilitate social distancing for more than one patient at a time. However a partner will be permitted to attend where necessary but must also complete the Covid Triage Form prior to arrival. Children may not attend the clinic during Covid 19 restrictions.
We Thank You for your co-operation at this time.
WE HAVE MOVED!
From Monday 18th May, all appointments will take place at our new Clinic at Suite 1, The Mall, Beacon Court, Sandyford, D18 PV34.
Car parking is available in the underground carpark at the Beacon Hospital. The entrance to the Beacon Court Consultants Clinic is on your left as you drive into the car park at the opposite end to the Beacon Hospital.
Phone numbers, website and email addresses remain the same.
We look forward to welcoming you there. Thank You.
We are delighted to update you that our partner IVF Clinic in Ireland, Institut Marques, has re-opened and is currently in the process of contacting all of our patients awaiting treatment with them. They are working as fast as they can to arrange appointments, but due to a large waiting list, you may experience a few days delay. Please email us if you are concerned that you have not yet received an appointment date, and we will track your referral progress for you.
Our Semen Analysis Screening Clinic has re-opened. The next available Clinic date is Wednesday 20th May.
Also on 20th May, we have our first PCT (Post Coital Screening) Clinic, which is a new service led by Dr. Kent Ayers with our partner Embryologist Dr. Robert Downer. We are the only Fertility Clinic in Ireland offering this test. Results can be provided within 24 hours.
We continue to remain open during this stage of the Covid 19 Virus. However Clinic hours may be limited to mornings – we will advise you at time of booking an appointment.
We are implementing all precautionary protocols necessary to maintain a safe environment for our patients. Antibacterial stations are present in each of our rooms, and we will provide gloves for the duration of your time in the clinic, to be disposed of once outside the building.

We are also providing contactless check-in and payment – simply wait in your car when you arrive, call us on the clinic mobile 086 8061532 and we will let you know when the Doctor/Nurse is ready to see you, where you can proceed straight to the Clinic Rooms. We will ask you to provide payment by credit card over the phone.
For those patients who have a review consultation or new patient consultation, and who do not wish to attend the clinic, we are providing FACETIME or TELEPHONE Consultations as an alternative which can be arranged with our Admin Co-ordinator. However monitoring scans, pregnancy scans and tests will require attendance as per the timing of your cycle protocol.
In the event of any change to your appointment, we will contact you by text the evening before your appointment. Any changes of clinic opening hours will be updated on our Website and Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/kafertility/
