Was just wondering whether anyone here had been referred to the RMC at UCH? We have our first appointment there in a few weeks and I'd really like to know what the first appointment is likely to entail?

Hi there, well done on getting an appointment.

I am miscarrying at home right now for the 3rd time and I called UCH today to find out when I can see a consultant at the RMU for recurrent miscarriages (UCH), they told me 6 weeks to get a letter, 12 wks for an appointment! - what timescales did you experience from GP referral to appointment pls? I can't wait that long to be seen because of my impending endo issues so am thinking of going private instead.

To answer your question: should be a consultation to chat about history and decide which bloods you'll need (karyotyping/chromosomes, blood clotting issues, APS's to do with your immune system rejecting it, plus a t/v u/s for uterine abnormalities like fibroids/septum etc) it says on the UCH website plus I asked the RMU today. Your response would be appreciated, any guidance of timescales after your appointment would be appreciate so I know whether to be patient or find the money to make it happen faster.

Lastly, wishing you all the luck in the world, I understand how you are feeling

Hi there,
So sorry to hear what you're going through. It sucks.

Re timescales, I had my last miscarriage on Nov 25th so must have seen my GP the following week to request a referral. I think my appointment date of 10th Feb must have come through by Christmas. So 2.5 months from referral to appointment.

I actually did a test this morning and am pregnant again, so I need to call the clinic on Mon to see what happens next.

I'll let you know what happens at my appointment if they say to still go.

Very much in denial about it all - can I really face this rollercoaster again?
