Bourn is great and you can get cancellations. It takes longer to see a specialist but once you're on the list it's pretty quick. I've had cancellations both times.
Hope this is helpful and good luck!

Hi everyone, we are going for our second ivf attempt at Bourn Hall i'm so excited this time around. Our first was in 2007 at Hammersmith which wasn't that good to be honest.

We have the seminar on 1st October and then our consulation with Mr Matthews on 5th october, Can anyone tell me how long roughly it is once you've seen the consultant to when they start you?

Bourne Hall waiting

Finally the NHS sent my referral to Bourne hall and the lovely lady from Bourne Hall has given tentative initial group consultation date for 10th december. Wanted to ask if someone is going on that day and also how long would be the waiting to start the treatment from that day on. Also, I am NHS funded so the hospital has done all the initial test for me and my husband.
Also, would they offer a earlier group consultation date if they have a cancellation?
Any help will be much appreciated

I had my consultation with Dr Thomas Matthews yesterday (14th September) and will be starting DR in middle of November, with EC dues w/c 14th December if all goes well, so that's about 2 months from consultation to start of treatment if that helps anyone.

Mrs Street,
Good luck with your treatment.
I had my consultation this week, I am going on the pill for just over 2 months to regulate my periods, (PCOS - disappeared since 04/09).
All going well EC for me will also be w/c 14th December, with a scan at the beginning of December.
Not too long really at all.

Hi

My name is Susan and i have just got my appointment through for the seminar on thr 1st October and consultant on the 2nd so i may see some of you there.

Just a little info on me. I was tTC for 2 years and then fell pg with my darling daughter who at 39 weeks in feb 09 was stillborn (my life has been changed forever). We have decided that TTC on our own (which we have been doing for 5 months) at the moment is to stressful and i cannot face a year of clomid and all the stress that goes with that. Oh and i also have a MMC in July.

I look forward to getting to know you all and good luck everyone.

Jules, do you mean you are attending the open day or a consultation with one of the doctors?
If its the open day, then you have about 20 couples all together in like a conference room and the doctors tell you all about the clinic, the different procedures and everything related to assisted conception with Bourn.
After the talk, you then go into the main reception area and have drinks and cake and this is where you can chat to the docs and nurses, make consultation appts and ask general questions. They usually save couple specific questions until your consultation.

I cant answer what happens at a consultation yet as mine isnt until the 9th but i will certainly post all the info i get.

Good luck with your appts and tx. Heres to a bumper crop of Bourn babes!!!!!

Hi molly.

We were refered in June and got the appointment for October come through about July time. Our consultant said that the wait was up to 18 weeks, so we were expecting the appointment for November and were pleasantly surprised.

I know from our experience that it can seem like forever between appointments. We were luck that out dr was very helpful. Which hospital are you using?

Good luck, I hope you get your appointment come through soon.

It seems really inconsistent as to how long people wait between referral and seminar and consultant appointment.
We were referred in July (from Ispwich hospital), and got a letter pretty quickly about attending seminar on 20 August. that was good, but in the same letter, it said our consultant appointment was 8 October! That seems like such a long wait especially compared with others here who have had consultant immediately after seminar. Very strange.

Perhaps they look to see what recent treatment you've had. I had just finished 3 cycles of IUI, so maybe they wanted to leave it a number of weeks for those meds to get out of my system?!

Ho hum, anyway, 8 October is next week now, so it's come around soon enough I guess (actually it's seemed like an eternity!).

Sorry if this has been asked before, but how quickly have others actually started meds (DR I guess) after consultant appt?

Thanks girls

Once you've seen the consultant is pretty quick. Even if they tell you you can start in deceber everytime you have your period you can ring to see if there is a cancellation.
Normally 2 periods after you've seen your consultant. But it depends if there are cancellations. For example I was seen at the end of August. He said I could start D/R in october. I rang them with the september period, asked for a cancellation and I got one so I've started 1 month ealrier.

The normal time between referral an seeing a consultant is 18 weeks. July to october is normal. Sometimes they have your consultant appointments right after the seminar cos the seminars can be busy.

Good luck.

Hi

I am currently a patient with Barts and looking to transfer to Bourne for one last cycle. My consulatant at Barts advised me in June that she would be able to transfer me directly but having spoken to Barts today they now say I need to go back to my GP and ask for a referral. Has anyone else at Bourne transferred from Barts and if so did yor transfer direct or go via your GP? This is so frustrating after being in the loop for 4 years.
However I did speak to the patient liaison lady at Bourne today and she said it would likely be January for a referral appointment which isn't too bad considering its now October its just such a rigamorole. Does anyone have any idea how long it generally then takes for a cycle after initial consulatation?
Any info would be appreciated. Many thanks!!!

It can take up to 3 months in theory. In practice you can ring with your first a/f after your consultation and ask if there are any cancellation. For example, I had my consultation at the end of August. The cons said e/c in november. When I got my september a/f I called and asked for a cancellation and they said yes! So here I am. Good luck!

From consultation to starting tx

Girls.....
How many of you are old hands at this tx lark?
Please can you let me know how long you have to wait between your consultation and starting treatment again?

I'm a little confused because i saw my cons on 9th Oct and he's not starting me again until feb.
I know they are trying to start the newbies quickly but what about anyone who has already have treatment and is doing their first one since this new PCT criteria??

HI Ladies

Billie - After my follow up appointments which have usually been 2-3 weeks after a failed treament they have asked me to wait for 3 periods before treatment starts. On the 1st day of my 3rd AF I have to phone the clinic and then that is day 1 of treatment. on day 21 I usually start DR.

They might have asked you to wait longer because maybe they are not booking so many in due to Xmas and New Year.

I should be there for EC and ET on November - fingers crossed!

Best of luck to all of you who are starting soon

Hi

We are at Bourn Hall and I start Nasal Sprays on 1st November. I have to go back this week to collect the drugs.

So far, I have found them to be pretty good, the phone often goes to answerphone, but they do always call me back.

I find the fact that the building and surroundings are so lovely to be a little relaxing too!

Well I just had e/c and e/t there and was not as happy as I thought I was going to be because:
1) most of the tx was done by myself at home, only 2 scans
2) if you ring it goes to answer phone and yes they ring you back but late in the day, always after 3 pm. So if you have a worry you have no one to talk to.
3) my other cycle was cancelled due to no response and when I started again they were not keen on doing a different protocol, while I would have liked to change it.

Obviously once you are there they are very good and the staff is lovely and they are experts, but it always seemed rushed.

I suppose it's different if you are on thei NHS list. They may have a specific package they offer to us NHS patients

Billie I have written in your diary but as far as waiting lists go it's getting busier and busier. I was quick to get in there cos my GP wrote the letter on the 1st of may when the rules changes so it was not ao busy then, also I rang them on the 1st of may and got my consultation and the tx started then next a/f. Now after having the june cycle cancelled my tx was planned for november, I was lucky I got a cancellation and had it in october, still about after 5 months, 4 from when they cancelled it.

I would like to say that I am really pleased with Bourn, I had my appointment in September and was told that I would be booked in for the 21st December '09, I told them I was gutted and was there no way I could get in any earlier?? The consultant went off to have a look - no such luck!!
I called on Day1 of this month and got in due to a cancellation - I am very happy to be starting treatment on Sunday - My Birthday!! Has to be a good omen .... :)
Hang in there for everyone who is waiting - will be your time soon

Here you go girls.....This is the ruling in blank and white... lol and red :P

3.2 In-Vitro Fertilisation (IVF)
For couples requiring IVF or ICSI, this policy supports a maximum of 6
embryo transfers with a maximum of three fresh cycles.
A fresh cycle would be considered completed if it leads to egg retrieval even if
fertilisation of the eggs is not achieved.
An embryo transfer is from egg retrieval to transfer to the uterus. The fresh
embryo transfer would constitute one such transfer and each subsequent
transfer to the uterus of frozen embryos would constitute another transfer.

4.5 Previous IVF treatment
Previous privately funded treatment will not preclude patients from being
eligible to NHS funded cycles up to a maximum of 6 embryo transfers or 3
fresh cycles. However previous cycles, whether NHS or privately funded, will
be taken into account by the responsible clinician in determining the clinical
appropriateness of commencing further cycles. In line with current clinical

Billie,
our first consultant appt was 8 Oct (after 1 July consultant referral).
We too have been told to wait until after Christmas. DR to start early Jan, with IVF/ICSI Feb 2010.

Our consultant did tell us to try for cancellations on Day 1 too.

I think we'll wait until Jan 2010 though, it's much easier to plan work, life etc if you know exactly when it's going to happen.

Dr Mauro-She's very nice and did my e/c and both my e/t and she's italian like me! :D She's ery caring and encouraging. Also very good with the procedures. E/C was totally painless afterwards, unlike last time when I had it done at Ipswich. She was great during both my e/t too.

The consultant I actually spoke with was Dr Diakos, also very nice.

Dr Mauro did a quick examination during my consultation, and as a result, advised me that perhaps a general anaesthetic might be better for E/C (obviously I must have been a bit twitchy!).
I liked her because my bmi was about 26.5 and she said that was absolutely fine (hoorah, I hate dieting!)

have you had general anaesthetic for e/c?

Dr Diakos did not examine me-thank God as his hands are big... :snigger:- but while having the scans they noticed one of my ovary was in a strange place so I had general too. I've had general at Ipswich too, but afterwards it was more painful that Dr Mauro's e/c. She is really kind.

Afternoon ladies,

Had our appt with Dr Matthews today. Just got to get blood groups and should be able to start injecting at the start of December. It's taken so long to get this far, just got to keep our fingers crossed. X
