My genetic counsellor has been amazing and has found out all the wait times for me. Nottingham and Leeds were over a year wait for the NHS hospitals.

Unfortunately care Nottingham have said that they wouldn’t offer my pgd as I have a heart condition with a defib fitted and as it’s a remote site they couldn’t ensure my safety when I have egg collection. We are going to back to them though as I have had it before at Manchester care with no issues.

I have started a referral for guys London with a 10 month wait to embryo transfer which isn’t as bad as I thought.

I would prefer care as the wait time is even shorter and I’m comfortable there but will have to see what they say.

Good luck for your appointment on Monday! Exciting to get things started! Xx

Hope u hear this week fingers crossed! So good they tell u the waiting times!

And amazing u get funding! This process can be so expensive!!!

So I’m due to have my generic counselling appointment Monday then I think they apply for nhs funding?! Once funding secure and agreed I can start treatment at Care!

Fingers crossed not much of a wait for consultation then to get going! Xxx
Hi Rach

Hope you are well.

How did you get one when you went back to care to ask about the referral? Hoping you have some positive news.

Although 10 months isn’t half as long as I thought it would be, so either way that’s good!
