bourn hall waiting time

Hi all

I've booked a consultation at Bourn Hall for February to discuss trying for my second child via ivf - obviously this will have to be done privately this time (yikes!). Does anyone know from recent experience what the waiting time is likely to be to start? I assume there is no difference in waiting time whether going privately or with nhs funding. I was hoping to start in the summer so it could be done during the holidays as i'm a teacher and don't want anyone to know this time.

Thanks if anyone can reply xx

The waiting list if you go private should be shorter. however as Bourn has taken on the NHS contract for IVF it may not be as short as it used to be. You would have to ask at the appointment.
(I'm a teacher too and I know how stressful it is to have to take the time off!)
Good luck xfingers

Emma i am at Bourn just now. We are undergoing FET. We had our consultation end of November & started this month. So you seem to be able to start pretty much from your next cycle if thats what you wish, so i am sure if your appointment is February the summer will be fine. At our appointment we where asked when we wanted to start & I just said ASAP as DH goes away end of Jan for 3 months so wanted it all done by then. Anyway :goodluck: with your next cycle of treatment when it comes :hugs:

Lets hope Bourn brings us both second babies in 2012 babydust
