Fertility journey survey - Bourn Hall
Have you got an experience of fertility care or treatment that you would like to share?
The fertility journey impacts both body and mind and everyone has a different experience. Bourn Hall would like to hear from people at all stages of the fertility journey, to help find new ways to improve both the care they receive and the outcome.
If you received NHS care, or were self-funded, were treated at Bourn Hall or another clinic, they want to hear from you.
Bourn Hall is the world’s first IVF clinic, set up by the fertility pioneers Steptoe and Edwards after the birth of ‘test-tube’ baby Louise Brown. For over 35 years it has provided self-funded treatment and NHS-funded fertility services to people who meet the eligibility criteria.
Good information at an early stage is very important in fertility treatment.
Many people delay going to see their GP through embarrassment but often some lifestyle advice from a health professional can boost natural fertility.
Equally others may be told to 'go away and try for longer' when they have a medical reason for infertility which could be resolved if the right testing was done.
The Fertility Journey research is supported by Healthwatch Havering and the results will be shared with commissioners and local public health to help inform their campaigns.
The survey should take around 5-10 minutes to complete and is anonymous. There is an opportunity to win a £50 John Lewis gift card as a thank you for completing the survey.
