Hi everyone - I’m new to this forum and have been undergoing investigation for Endo for the last year or so, though enduring the symptoms a lot longer!
I know there is an nhs wait time of 18 weeks (allegedly maximum..!) but I was wondering if anyone knows how this actually works and what it applies to.
Having tried and failed with a bunch of other treatments I was finally added to the lap waiting list on February 22nd 2019 (first appointment with my GP was just before Easter last year). Having called the hospital this morning (March 28th) I’m still on the waiting list, and they can’t tell me how long for. Does anyone have any experience of waiting times in London? From your referral is it 18 weeks, or 18 weeks just from being placed on the waiting list? It all seems so unclear and I can’t get any straight answers from admissions. Just want to get this pain addressed and hopefully be able to move on with life.
Thank you everyone!
