LGI waiting times


Has anyone had treatment at LGI and can tell me how long they waiting for their first consultation? DH and I have had all our initial tests done at Dewsbury Hospital, it has taken just short of 1 year to get to this point and has just taken them 4 weeks to send a referral letter :hairout to LGI.

Anyway I spoke to them today at LGI and they do have my referral but she couldn't tell me how long it would be before I was offered an appointment, I know I really do have to be patient but I'd like at least some idea.

Also what should we expect from our first appointment?

hiya, think we waited about 6 weeks for a referral.

then the first apponitment we chatted to Mrs Sharma about everything we has already had done and then what we need in the future, funding, etc.......

its really relaxed nothing too scary

I had all my initial tests and then they kept me waiting for months - I had my tests in August 2008 but didnt have my nurses consultation until Feb this year! I think I got lost somewhere in the system because when I last saw the Dr before my consultation, he was really apologetic and couldnt understand why I had been waiting so long. So make sure you keep ringing them - I was under Mrs Sharma but at Jimmies not the LGI so may be different at LGI or I could have been a one off error! Got to say though, once I'd got to ACU they were absolutely fantastic. If I decide to go through this again, will def go back there. Good luck xx

I'm with Jimmy's too, they got my referral letter in August and I have my first appointment booked for 15 Oct. I have done this before though and they have all my details so its really annoying that I have this appointment I just want a nurse consultation but still have to go through this bit, hope they don't do all the tests again! LGI may be different though but I would keep chasing as with the move and the merger you don't want to delay things as I think they aren't taking new patients soon. xxx
