Vasectomy services during covid available in our clinics across the country

News from MSI UK  •  1 February 2021  • 3 min read



After a short pause, during the COVID-19 lockdown, we are pleased to announce that vasectomy appointments are available in our clinics across the country.

(last updated 17 February 2021)

Our vasectomy services have been up and running since 11th May 2020 in most areas. The latest restrictions (the new National Lockdown) do NOT affect our healthcare services. 

If you want to have a phone consultation, book an appointment, or if you need to be in touch with us about your post-op testing, please rest assured we are open as usual.

Our Vasectomy Services: available during the covid pandemic

Jonathan Lord, MSI Reproductive Choices UK’s Medical Director said:

“Resumption of vasectomy services means that men can once again access one of the most effective choices of contraception. It is such a quick and simple procedure – usually less than 15 minutes from start to finish – and we know that couples value the reassurance of knowing the risk of an unwanted pregnancy is behind them.

Debi Hammond, UK Head of Vasectomy & Commissioning added:

“I am delighted that we have been able to resume our vasectomy services and can continue to offer reproductive choice to men. In 2019 we provided almost 6,000 vasectomies across the UK, helping to reduce the number of unplanned pregnancies in the UK and I’m very proud to lead this service.”

All our clinics take COVID-19 precautions seriously. We have put in place additional safeguards to ensure social distancing is maintained before and after the procedure and are constantly reviewing our processes to ensure we are working in line with government guidelines.

NHS-Funded or private Vasectomies

If you would like to have an NHS-funded vasectomy with MSI Reproductive Choices, your GP will need to fill out a referral form and send it to us. In some areas of the country you are able to refer yourself without seeing your GP first. You can call us, or your GP surgery, to see if you can self-refer.

Private vasectomy appointments are also available – you can find more about private vasectomy costs at this link.
