X( So do i Maria! i am going on friday for my first baseline scan, so i will report back lol!!! i will mention to the nurse when i see her, will it change waiting times etc etc now there will be more people attending!
I still havent heard back from my NHS specialist re attending Bourne NHS rather than James Paget, its been over a week now, she is usually good at replying, it would save the NHS money anyway, as i am attending Bourn private, so ive paid for all the initial tests etc!
we shall wait and see! and i will report back next friday, if it is like a cattle market and we are poked with electric prods :snigger: :snigger:

I was told by Bourn that they were not going to have any satellite centres.J ust go the GP and get referred to Bourn directly. That's what I did.

If you have 1 go private you can still have your other goes if it's not successful. The new funding allows for up 3 fresh cycles and 3 frozen ones. If you had a private one it won't affect you nhs goes, as long as it's not more than 2 private goes.

Hi Girls

Well been to Barts again today and I must say what a difference from Wednesday. Less waiting time, more organised and altogether more with it. Seems they must be getting more of a grip on things now they've had the week since Norwich closed. Still a trashing journey but everything else was okay.
Only thing which bugged me was that I need further Gonal-F and they made me pay prescription charges. Will have to discuss this with the nurses when I go back on EC next week. So a little less stressed and a little happier today :smile:
Good luck with Bourne, keep us up to date on whether it changes as I may opt for Bourne next if this cycle doesn't work.

I think they're probably all in a mess becuse of the changes and nobody is sure 100% of what's happening. They're all still getting organised with the new patients and rules.

Hopefully it'll be ok after a few weeks.

Hi garfield, that sounds awful! Can you book the tickets in advance? Also it should be cheaper if you get a ticket outside the rush hour.

trains

hi
i only got the app on wednesday so it only gave me 6 days to book. eventually went with raileasy.co.uk got them for £75 return, trouble is if you have a early app you have to get the peak time train my app is 10-40am so it costs a fortune.

also don't know if any one has heard this, but when i was given my app the nurse said that the are closing the clinic for three weeks in june for a refurb? and i may have to stop treatment because they won't be open.
but we will see on tuesday hope not im getting quite excited.

Nicola hun,
I've been going down without DH to save money. I just go to the ticket office at Norwich and book my ticket. I haven't paid more than £30 return. Also, when I told Agatha (Receptionist at Barts) how much it was at peak time, she made sure my scans were 11am or 12. I've been getting the 8.30 or 9am from London.
