Where is the satellite?
Who can use the satellite?
The Basingstoke satellite service is available to all patients, both NHS and self-funding, undergoing fresh IVF or frozen embryo replacement cycles.
Which appointments can I have at the satellite?
The following appointments can take place at the satellite:
- Initial consultation
- Blood tests
- Consenting appointment
- Scan appointments
- Pregnancy scans
- Follow-up appointment
All patients will have to attend our Southampton clinic for their egg collection and embryo transfer appointment and for semen analysis. Some patients may also require additional procedures (e.g. cyst aspiration, sperm freeze, surgical sperm retrieval) which can only be done at the main clinic in Southampton.
How will using the satellite affect my treatment?
The aim of the satellite service is to make treatment more convenient for you. Our Basingstoke satellite is staffed by our consultants and fertility services co-ordinator from our Southampton clinic so you receive the same high levels of care that you would in our main clinic. Appointments are conducted as they would be in Southampton and all scan and blood test results are put on our database so the decisions made about your treatment, and your chances of success, are the same whether you choose to have your appointments in Basingstoke or Southampton.
