IVF funding in Surrey, help!

We have been TTC for almost 2 years, we've had basic tests done when we lived in Portsmouth and since then moved to Surrey where we have seen another fertility doctor on the Nhs who wants the same basic tests done again ( blood tests and sperm sample) and also told us in Surrey you haveto be 39 years old and have been trying for 3 years so we were instantly refused. She has given us a follow up appointment in January - what for? I don't know. Can I appeal the decision? Shall I wait until January when I go and see her again? My husband has erectile dysfunction but sperm results ok. My first blood test came back ok,but they did one random one at random time of month, this time in Surrey I'm having day 2 and day 23 blood tests awaiting the results.

Any help would be greatly received this is all so confusing and not knowing what to do next is driving me mental!

Thanks in advance

Here is the link to the most recent guidelines for Surrey:…on%20Policy.pdf

It basically says you have to be between the ages of 23 and 39 and the doctor is correct that you have to have been ttc for three years *unless* they have an identifiable cause (which you do from your previous diagnostics).

I'd phone up the PCT if i was you and ask for clarification because you have the main diagnostics done already.
