Free Fertility Information Event at MFS

The new-format Fertility Information Event from Midland Fertility Services (MFS) offers a free 15 minute pre-consultation appointment.  As well as talking to one of the MFS nurses or embryologists, visitors can get advice from an MFS NHS funding expert or from one of the finance team.

The Fertility Information Event is open to anyone who wants to learn more about current fertility treatments and how they can be treated at MFS as either a private or NHS-funded patient.  The next event will take place from 6.00-8.00pm on Thursday 31 March at the MFS clinic in Aldridge, near Walsall.  Other events are held each month throughout the year.

The free pre-consultation appointments can be booked in advance by calling 01922 455911, or on arrival at the event.

“The patient information events are an informal way for people to learn more about their fertility options, whether they have initial concerns about not conceiving or even if they have already seen their GP or consultant” said Heidi Birch, director of nursing services.

“MFS staff will welcome people to the unit and give an overview of what different fertility and miscarriage tests and treatments involve.  Importantly, the events are intended to demystify fertility treatment and to give reassurance to people who have been advised that they cannot conceive naturally, that they are not alone and that a friendly team is available to help, often with no waiting lists.”

To book your free pre-consultation appointment for the MFS Patient Information Event on Thursday 31 March or 28 April, call MFS on 01922 455911.
