Yes you can book again. Once you have made a booking we can provisionally book you into a clinic and send you all the forms required.

If your GP agrees to refer you we are happy to keep you on a waiting list, but please be aware that following the end of the crisis there may be increased pressure on appointments.

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
