    Got a letter through for my appointment, i wont get seen untill August 8th 2007!!
    Really gutted but theres nothing i can do about it really. Ive got private medical insurance that i can use from May 07 but chances are it might not cover anything for infertility.

    Oh no :hugs: at least you have a date for things to move on. You never know you may get a cancellation.

    hiya,
    When I got my last consultanst appointmnt through it was far away but if you keep calling every week you might get a cancellation, I did with ttc2. Shaved a couple of months off the waiting time.
    Where is your appointment, do you go straight to the Royal.

    Once I had seen the consultant with the first ttc journey and we got into the system for ivf things moved pretty quickly. I think my very first consultants appointment was in the dec, I was referred for a lap which confirmed blocked tubes in the march and by October I was due to start ivf cycle (which never happened as I fell myself).

    It is totally outrageous, isn't it? There is just no consideration in this country given to the mental effects of fertility issues. If there was, there is no way people would have to wait this long.

    Charm's got a good point though. Make sure that you ring up and they know you will take a cancellation however short the notice.

    I'm sorry to say, that I don't think ranting will have any effect. Most PCTs in this country have similar waiting times. When our GP first referred us in January, she said it would be August before our first appointment.

    The cynic in me thinks that they hope that people will either pay or get PG naturally while they are waiting. It's disgusting! :evil:

    Hugs to you AG :hugs:
