So we’ve been referred for ivf/icsi about a month ago, I got told I’d get a letter confirming funding or not.
What does the letter normally say ? And what will I need to do regarding the hospital?
I’m based in Birmingham women’s if that helps
Thankyou x

We are in London and our timeline from referral to the hospital is;

Early May - referral sent
Early June - hospital requested that we fill in various forms online / provide ID etc
Early July - they reviewed our case and out of forward to local trust for funding
Early August - found out we have been accepted for funding and have an appointment later this month with a consultant to look at next steps

The funding letter states conditions for funding and how many / what will be funded. Ours says we must start treatment within 3 months of the funding letter. So hopefully treatment will start soon.

This is a year after initial investigations began and maybe different process in your area. All the best.
