    huy guys :wave:

    jus thought id say hi - i know i been quiet lately but self preservation - i just use my journal as a sanctuary!! :)

    well i chased up my gynae appoiintment today - 7mnth waiting list so definetly wont be seen until june 2012 :(
    i went into see the secetary to see if there was anyway i could chase it up - played the nurse card to see if i could get a favour an seen quicker - worth a shot eh? but NO definetly 7mnths so june! the secetary was very nice- i said i have heard you can have your initial appointment privately then switch back to nhs she said yes but with a different consultant - her secetary is on AL until monday - so.... the 1 i spoke to took my details and will pull my file out and give it to the other secetary and gave me her direct no and i have to phone on monday - eeeeeek!!

    £100 odd to go private for the intial appointment so FX i could have an appointment date next week :D
    a collegue did it this way - saw her consultant privately then had a hyscoscopy on nhs and then started clomid - pg first month so there is hope for me yet!! :)

    sorry for the long post my quick hi has turned into an essay!

    Hi Hun! Loving the pro active approach, Deffo go for the private appointment, I reckon it will be the best £100 you ever spent if you get seen next week rather than June! I would have done the same if the wait was that bad here. Can I ask where abouts you are? Just I wOrk for the NHS and wait times for first appointments have to be under 18 weeks or PCT's get fined. hmmm. Xxx

    I feel bitter now about paying for my OP, if you do your homework you'll probably find a private consultant is at an NHS hospital too. :)

    fx on the earlier appointment, it's got to be worth a try to speed things up. A 7 month wait seems like a very long time.
