    A clinic that helps people make babies is to resume treatments after being given the go-ahead by the fertility regulator.

    The Bristol Centre for Reproductive Medicine (BCRM) has been named as one of the first clinics nationwide permitted to resume operations.

    Clinic director, Valentine Akande, said he is "so very pleased" to be allowed to restart.

    "We have been working hard during lockdown to ensure that now this moment has arrived we are fully prepared to provide a safe service to patients and a safe working environment for our staff with all the necessary precautions including PPE," he said.

    People will only be called to visit the centre for tests, scans and procedures that cannot be done remotely.

    Patients whose treatment was delayed or interrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic are being contacted.

    Any women or couples who wish to discuss having treatment and have not yet had an appointment are encouraged to book one because the clinic will be commencing treatment on a first-come-first-served basis going forward.
