Patient Support Group

Patient Support Group

What Are the Benefits?

The objective of the Patient Support Group is to facilitate our patients in coming together in a secure and confidential environment to offer each other support and share their experiences.

The fertility journey can test the emotional resilience of the individuals and couples involved. The atmosphere of the group  is calm and social, with coffee breaks being just as important for interaction as the facilitated group.

Participants have varying levels of experience, with some at the beginning of the journey and some who have been on the road for a while. Those who have attended say they find the group helpful and that it can be the only place they can interact with others who really ‘get it’.

The group is facilitated by our counsellor, Kay Duff, who will offer information and advice if required.

  • When: 18.00-19.30, the first and third Wednesday of every month. 
  • Where: this group normally meets in Merrion Fertility Clinic but for the period of the Covid pandemic it has been held via Zoom

This is a free service for our patients, however, registration within 24 hours of the group start time is required as places are limited.

For more information on the groups and how to register please see attached Information Leaflet.
