Mine took ages to come through last time.. I stalked them by telephone because I was desperate to get on the books of the hospital where I had DD (I'm not in their catchment and the alternatives near where I live are not great). Anyway eventually the letter came when I was about 10 weeks. I have to say they were remarkably patient with me on the phone!!!
