Hi everyone,

I just wanted to know how long your referral took to come through from Hospital to NHS fertility clinic?

Its been 4 weeks and still not heard anything yet.

Thank you.

Have you checked your gp has sent it? Mine took about three weeks to even be sent to the hospital 🙄

@GreenShades I was referred end of June by GP and appointment letter came in August for early September

I mean being referred to a clinic/hospital for IVF.

My GP referred me to the hospital and now after many tests etc I have now been referred to another hospital of my choosing for IVF.

Guidelines set often say within 16 weeks

Oh sorry. When you said fertility clinic I thought you meant you were right at the start of your journey, being referred for initial consultation.

Hope you get an ivf date thru soon 👍🏻

@squirrelnutkins1 thank you. I'm going to ring today to see what's going on.

So I rang up today and my referral still has not been sent! Apprantly the consultant has not dictated the referral letter yet. 4 weeks just wasted.
