I don't quite understand Caz1976 reply, so forgive me please (both of you) if I've got the wrong end of the stick.
But I'm 37 and we have just been through the Hull Clinic on NHS. I was 36 when we had our first meeting with the professor.
I just took the reply to mean that private meant you wouldn't get nhs funding at all due to being over 35.
I'm not saying you will get the funding, as I can't recall the whole criteria, but I just know we got nhs funding no problem.
Again, sorry if I've misunderstood.
We saw the prof early sept, then went to the open evening early nov. By mid november we were starting our first cycle.
Good luck and lots of love hun!!
