More and more clinics are coming to see the benefits of opening their doors to prospective patients, and this is something that we should all welcome. For anyone who is going to be spending their own money on fertility treatment, making sure that you feel you’ve chosen the right place for you is essential – and that’s why it’s a really good idea to go and see as many clinics as you can. The more places you visit, the more you’ll get a feel for what matters to you and for what might suit you – and it’s easier to feel confident about your decision if you’ve visited some of the other options on offer.
I wasn’t sure about putting Open Evenings on my Events Page at first – free advertising for clinics and all that – but actually I’ve realised that they’re really useful for prospective patients. So do take a look, and go along and visit some of the places near to you. Some even include a brief individual consultation as part of the Open Evening and this can be very useful.
Of course, for clinics the Open Evening can be a bit of a sales pitch – which some may push more than others – so the one important thing to keep in mind is that going to an Open Evening doesn’t in any way commit you to having treatment at a specific clinic.
