Contacting Existing Members of the Donor Conceived Register 

The Hewitt Fertility Centre will start to contact existing members of the Donor Conceived Register commencing Monday 23rd September 2019 to inform them of the recent changes in service provision.

A copy of our privacy notice will be sent to explain how personal data will be processed, what data we are collecting, why we need it, what it is used for and who will have access to this information. If the registrants agree with the terms of the privacy notice, they will be asked to return their accompanying consent form no later than Monday 21st October 2019.

Registrants who fail to return consent forms by the above date will be removed from the Donor Conceived Register.

The Hewitt Fertility Centre has been chosen to provide an important service to match donors and donor-conceived people in the UK.

Awarded by the HFEA (Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority), the contract entrusts us with the Donor Conceived Register (DNR), which was created to match and establish links between pre-August 1991 donors and donor-conceived people.

This followed the passing of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act in the same month, which for the first time required all IVF treatments, cycles and use of donated eggs and sperm to be recorded in one place.

As soon as the service is established at the Hewitt Fertility Centre, our clinics will provide and manage counselling and DNA testing services to individuals across the UK who were either donors or donor-conceived before 1991.

We will do this through our dedicated counselling team and highly trained specialists, who not only deeply understand the sensitive issues involved, but will continue our commitment to providing the best possible service to all of our patients.

Details of how to access this service will be made available shortly. In the meantime, please visit www.donorconceivedregister.org.uk for more information.

You can also contact by phone on 0151 702 4339 or email donorconceivedregister@lwh.nhs.uk.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A NEW SERVICE AND THIS SECTION OF OUR WEBSITE IS CURRENTLY BEING DEVELOPED WITH MORE INFORMATION.
