The role of Fertility Scotland

Fertility Scotland’s priorities


Fertility Scotland has been established to support NHSScotland fertility services to take a ‘Once for Scotland’ approach in how they work and how they improve the care they provide to patients.

This includes for example improving referral pathways, developing common processes and standards for both clinical and laboratory care pathways and protocols, and facilitating data gathering, analysis and publication of outcomes to promote continual service improvement.

The ‘facet diagram’ below gives a summary overview of the key areas that the network will focus on in its work programme.
