RFC waiting list times

Hi everyone. I am just wondering if anyone has recently reached the top of the list at RFC Belfast. I was added at the start of September and haven't heard anything yet. I've rang a couple of times but I'm not getting any specific answers from the clinic. Hoping the wait isn't too much longer!

Hi ladies. I was put on the IVF waiting list on the 22nd June, I got my top of the list letter end of January, 1st appointments 7th March & 21st March. So from going on the list until you reach the top is around 7 months but actually 9 by the time you get your appointments! Its very slow xx

Thanks Oaky. That's good to know. Gives me an idea of when to expect my letter. When I was added to the ivf waiting list in September they originally said 6 months so I was expecting to hear sometime in February. I hate waiting on the post everyday! We started this process last April when we had our initial consultation. Such a long process. I hope your cycle goes extremely well. Good luck!

Hi there ladies, I have been on the waiting list since the end of August and came home today to the letter with an appointment. From reading through the forum here I see some of you have been offered 2 appointments initially. Just wondering why I have only been offered the one appointment is this the normal process? I've been very patient with the wait and now the letter has arrived I'm overthinking

Hi Girls, I rang the RFC last week and I was so frustrated and disappointed I cried! I was told the last time I rang at the start of the year to expect my letter on the 1st of April as they were working on June patients at that time. I've been told its now looking like we should receive our letter in May as they are working on July patients. In the space of 3 months, they have gotten through a month on the list! May doesn't seem much longer but I'm wondering if you just got strung along for months with the same story. When I initially rang in November I was told 6 months. They keep changing it :-( The lady I spoke with said that they send the letters out weekly and rather than the 7 months we were initially told the list is now more like 7 to 9 months as they are busier and appointment slots are booked up. She was lovely on the phone but I was so angry afterwards.

I think the waiting times are different for IVF and ICSI though so this might just affect the ICSI side? Fingers crossed we get some news soon. This wait is driving me crazy! Anyone on the ICSI list get their offer letter lately? xx

Same thing happened to me when I rang they said I would get mines in April i was devastated and the girl said waiting list is 9 months then I rang a week later and they said it was already posted out. I would t take what they say so true as I heard before from other girls the same thing happened to them. What date did you get put on list?

Hey poppy I was told so many different times on the phone too. It's extremely frustrating!! I was put on the list on the 11th August and received my top of the list letter on the 9th march, so that's about 7 months, keep holding it there it's worth the wait

Nothing yet. I rang RFC today again and all she said was the waiting list is 8 months! They wouldn't give me a more specific answer unlike the last time I rang when they said which letters have just been sent out. So frustrating!

Just off the fone to rfc and the lady said that at the minute they are sending letters that wer put on the list end of August /start of September...
I'm just curious if anyone phoned to double check when they wer officially put on the list.. I rang the morning after we signed papers to double check as I had read somewhere that some people didn't get put on it til a week or so after they thought they had.
