Post subject: Gee Thanks NHS
We have been on a waiting list for IVF for over a year now and we were told it would only be part funded because they don't cover where we live. Our local hospital doesn't do IVF at all.
I spoke to the pratice Manager at my doctors yesterday only to be told that their IVF patients ALL go to a different hospital about 42miles away where they get their treatment for free.
I'm now waiting for her to come back to me and let me know if we have to join at the bottom of the list again at this hospital or whether we can stay where we are and they will issue funds for us.
I'd just like to thank my doctor for not telling me the information I needed and for all the extra stress he has now placed on me!

Just had the most fantastic news! I can join the waiting list of a nearby private hospital and get 2 free cycles and they only have a 18week waiting list apparently.
Still ended up crying but at least they were tears of joy!
Sorry just very excited now
