Kara - thanks - that link (http://www.writetothem.com/
) is fantastic - it makes it so quick and easy to write to AM and MP (sets out letter format and everything!) would def recommend it to anyone thinking about writing.
I've sent email to my AM (Irene James) and MP (Don Touhig). I asked for help in establishing exactly what the announcement ('access to treatment from April') meant and asked questions about what's happening, who to contact for more info etc and rounded it off with the following...
"Undergoing fertility treatment is unpleasant and stressful at the best of times. The hopes raised following the announcement have been cruelly dashed by the current uncertainty and lack of information for patients."
Fingers crossed that like you, I'll get a response soon.... Will keep you all posted....
Jules - good luck with your follow-up hun xx Let us know how you get on and whether they're able to give you any more info. xx
R - I understand completely - no worries - I'd have thought that they would be interested in getting people's stories more than names. I'm happy for my name to be given (wouldn't fancy having my pic taken tho
) Keep me posted if you contact paper, otherwise I'll contact them at the end of next week. If it takes as long as i think it might to get appointment for 2nd cycle i think we'll probably be self-funding next cycle too... I'm enjoying having something to focus on! xx
