I know exactly what you mean.  I had been to see my GP for funding back in April and finally in mid August someone told me that we "had missed the funding" and would need to retry in April next year.  I was livid so wrote to my local MP, the secretry of Heath and to my local PCT (PALS section).  I have had replies from all of them but all they do is blame each other.  I was fortunate enough to get on the egg share scheme in my area, and fell pg first time, but i was so angry, i was prepared to do anything.  They dont seem to realise they are playing with peoples lives.  I did even think about contacting watchdog or going to the papers, thats how angry i was.  If you need any more help, let me know as i would be willing to help in anyway i can.
Good luck and i hope you get your treatment soon.

I was just told by my clinic.  It would be worth you making a call to ask if it is available.  What area are you in.  We got accepted on the scheme, had loads of tests and had treatment all within about 3 months.  It only cost us for sperm test, 1st consultation fee and HFEA fee (total less than £500.00).
At my clinic you have to have a minimum of 7-8 eggs to share, but if you dont reach that you dont suddenly get a whopping great bill to cover the treatment. 
I would seriously ask.....I was seen at Woking Nuffield so i know they offer it?
Good luck.
