Is anyone on the waiting list for nhs funded IVF?

Posted by: Kirsty28 - 8 Sep 12 09:09

Seems this is a postcode lottery in Scotland.

After numerous hospital appointments in the last year we finally had our first appointment at Ninewells today to be told its a 3 years waiting list for nhs funded treatment. I knew about the waiting list but never knew it would be this long. Very gutted to be honest after ttc for 4 years.

How long did you wait?

Thanks for any info, Kirsty x

Hi Kirsty 

I'm paying for treatment privately at Glasgow Royal but I know that the waiting list for nhs funded treatment in greater Glasgow and clyde and ayrshire and arran is 2 years but for Lanarkshire it's 12months, or so said a poster in one of their treatment rooms. Hope yours comes sooner x
