Who are we

This means that staff in your employment WILL be impacted by this devastating condition even if they haven’t discussed it openly with you. There are a number of factors that can cause infertility which can be attributed to either male or female parties but whatever the reason it is to be recognised that infertility is a disease – World Health Organisation (WHO).

Partnership

The Corporate Partnership Programme has been developed to facilitate greater interaction between F N UK and external organisations. The programme is designed to be flexible and mutually beneficial; each partnership proposal is unique, and F N UK will work with partners to attempt to ensure that their investment generates the required outputs sought. Due to F N UK’s governing document, its constitution, it is not permitted to promote one treatment or one clinic over another therefore the Corporate Partnership Programme cannot offer any level of exclusivity for participants. It will however strive to ensure that the substantial investment made by partners is reflected in an appropriate manner and F N UK will assist partners achieve their objectives through a diverse mixture of advertising, sharing of information and participation at events.

Corporate relationships are renewable each year and the level and frequency of payment is negotiable.

Income generated by the programme will be reinvested by FNUK to increase the levels of support and information offered to those who seek our help. This will be achieved by such activities as the provision of patient information events; enhanced online activity and the expansion of the network of regional staff.

Acceptance on the Fertility Network Corporate Programme is not automatic. The Network undertakes due diligence.  As part of this process a representative from the Network would ordinarily have discussions with the prospective partner to gain more knowledge about the organisation and to discuss their expectations.  With this knowledge, the Network can properly market the services of the partner where appropriate.

The Corporate Partner Programme is offered at a sliding rate between £2,500 and £12,000 per year. The following entry and enhanced level options are described below and there is the option to join the partnership at a mid-way point – the benefits attached to this level of entry are also negotiable.
