Hi,

I am new to this and am not sure if I am posting in the right part, but was just wondering if any of you had answers to my questions!

I have had such a nightmare already with all of this.

At first I was really lucky, got referred by GP, to Chelsea and Westminster, got our initial consultation within 3 weeks, she then booked us in for our tests and gave us a follow up app for 6 weeks time.
I made sure we had all tests and app done, it works out that prob is with my partner.
At follow up app, both male specialist and our consultant, agreed that IVF was the best option, and explained that we could start it within 3-5 weeks, could not believe my luck!! All they had to do was send funding application to Redbridge PCT which should be back within the week!

SO HAPPY!!! then find out that Redbridge only fund for the Homerton and Barts, and therefore my GP should never have sent us there, so have to start all again!

Have app with Barts on 24th, they have contacted Chelsea and Westminster for copies of test results, but Im really worried that they will make us do tests all again, which I really cant go through again, as you all know are horrible! Does anyone know if they will make us do them again?
And also how long is waiting time for IVF from initial consultation? Any help would be great xx
