Well, that's fab news.

I recieved the letter from my PCT who sent a standard letter with a firm no. I think that for them to send a letter saying they will contact you in due course at least means they are considering it.

Fingers crossed sweetie

another update.

hi all,

got letter today from pct it says:

I am writing to you to acknowledge your letter dated 16th january, in whichh you enquire about accessing fertility treatment.
As the patient manager for Primary care it is my roleto co-ordinate a response to your enquiry.

In order that we might be able to give you a full a response as possible i have asked colleagues to provide me with reports, which may contail clinical details relating to yourself. If you do not wish me to receive this please let me know immediately, although i should advise that this may limit the detail within our written response.

We will however do our upmost to respond to your enquiry within the next 4 weeks, but please be assured we will advise you if there is likely to be a delay.

Once you have had time to consider our reply, i would ask that you let me know if you are in any way dissatisfied so that we can look into the matter further, or if you wish, arrange for you to meet with seniour staff.

In the meantime, please be assured that your enquiry is receiving our immediate attention.


Does this sound good or bad?.
Should they not be looking into dhs record as its him that has the problem? or will this be on my file too?.

Do i need to write back and say i agree or just leave it?

I had a consent form which i returned but yours reads as though you only need contact them if you DON'T want them to get details.
I suppose most agree so they just get on with it.
I also got a call from Dr's to check I was ok with them sending info off.
Phone them if your unsure. No harm in makin a phone call

Kat, that is fab. It is deffinately a positive step. I woud tell them you agree asap to get things moving. Fingers crossed sweetie.

I also received a letter but from my MP who enclosed the letter that he has recieved from our PCT saying exactly what they told me - NO. He did go on to say that he would chase them up for me periodical as feels its a fight worth fighting. I just hope he means that and is not just trying to fob me off, but at the end it said to call him if I had any questions. To be honest I have got my head around going private so anything else is a bonus.

Lets hope you have better luck sweetie.

Well done Chalmers,
Now all you have to do is wait........argh.
I thought we would have to go Private and could only afford inital consultation and Bloods, so expensive.
We eventually got 1 go with NHS and got BFP. So all the effort is well worth it.

Hope you hear soon x

update. 7th feb 2008

hi all,


got a letter from the mp today which enclosed a letter from the pct.

basically it said that because dh had a vasectomy we were not eligible for funding.

It says at the time of the vas he would have been told to seriously consider that he would never father children again.

I cant beleive it , i though we stood a little chance, obviously not.

Should i appeal again? or just leave it?.

How can they not see things change, dh had the vasectomy nearly 20 years ago now. is he not allowed to change his mind?

Hi

Glad your thinking of appealing as what youve been told is possibly not the case.

I have a little sister who was conceived through IVF with my Dads 2nd marriage.
My Dad had the snip after I was born 29 years ago, and he was able to get full funding 3 times from Leeds. I think he was referred from Manchester.

They where 3rd time lucky when they conceived my sister once again this was all fully funded by the NHS.

Best of luck sweetie.

My cons wrote on Dec 17th and my doctor on Jan 8th and we haven't heard a dickie bird! Can't get hold of Cons and his secretary is useless, DH has called her every day for two weeks and has left message afteer message on answerphone and she has never got back, I'm trying to ignore it or I'll get too stressed! x

Ok well if it was me I would contact Hosptal Reception ask for dept that deals with complaints.
But rather then Offiial complaint jst speak to some one there, and explain no letter in over a month and not one returned cal in 2 weeks.
Maybe soften them up - say somethng like I appriciate you are all busy, but all you want is a simple progress report a 2 min conversation. If they dont offer to make a call to the secatary for you, or offer any constructive advice.
Ask how you make official complaint (if this secertary is unable to get through her work or the consultant is laps its better to get yourself known - they wont for get you next time :snigger:)

Write down what has happened and when the calls etc, I will help futher down the road if you still are not getting a reply.

It may sound abrubt but sometimes if you want answers its best to start a the top and work down.

I think it is gonna have to come to that. I made a complaint in August directly to the cons about the lack of communication and in particular the secretary etc as we have had alot of issues, I thought it would pick up but no! I like your idea of a softly softly approach tho and so will give it a go tomorrow, I'll let ya know! x

Hi Chalmers,

Yes defo appeal. The urologist who did my hubbys rev wrote to the LHB asking if our case would qualify for funding but the reply came back that there is "well documented counselling that its a permanent procedure". Am still mulling over a counter attack!!!

whay do you think???

hi lel,


yes i think you should appeal too. thats ok saying its permanent but who knows whats going to happen in life 19 years later.

things change people form new relationships, so why should we be the ones that suffer?

appeal and see what happens.

Hi Ladies

I managed to get hold of the email address for the Head of Commisioning at the PCT. After a lot of umming and arrhhhhing I eventually emailed her today, explained the situation and asked if she could give me any idea of time scale etc.

She emailed back and said she has passed my email to her colleague to investigate and get back to me direct - so far no news!

I am away the beginning of next week and so hopefully will have some news on my return, if not I'm gonna get mad X(

Fingers crossed eh! Funnily enough I did get a phone number but opted to email as I wanted a paper trail as evidence. Would have thought they would have to respond. If not MP here I come!

Think time away willl be taxing rather than enjoyable - taking 26 kids away, sleepless nights and paitence tested -I must be mad!!!!
