COVID-19 Information


Coronavirus Update

Following the Government announcement on a National lockdown from Thursday Oct 29th 2020 we would just like to reassure you that all healthcare services here at Thames Valley Vasectomy and Surgical Services, are running as usual with CQC approved COVID safety measures in place.

We are taking our patients health and our staffs health very seriously and therefore will change the way we work significantly. Click here to Learn how we plan to work safely during COVID-19

List of NHS priority after re-start of the service: 1) patients who had an appointment cancelled due to COVID-19 2) patients with very urgent vasectomy needs for a variety of reasons 3) routine new referrals strictly according to referral date.

Postal Semen Sample Kits

Private patients and NHS Armed Forces Patients / Oxford received postal sample kits for “Acculabs” on the day of their appointment. If in your discharge pack is a sample kit for “Acculabs” this service is still provided, but please note due to staff shortages at the lab, and self isolation, services are slower at processing samples at present
