Good morning, lovely people.
I've just spoken to the GP surgery to try to get a referral to a BSGE centre, having already had a diagnosis and surgery for deep endo. I don't currently have one of these centres in my notes as I went through insurance at previous job and had surgery privately.
The GP said they couldn't choose what sort of centre to send me to but they would refer me to local gynae and that the gynae service would send me wherever was appropriate. My understanding was that it is possible to refer directly to BSGE (for known or suspected severe endo) so I said this, but GP was insistent that it wasn't possible and that general gynae would direct me as appropriate.
If the GP is correct, do I need to do anything to ensure that I get seen by the right people? I accept that it will be a very long wait, so want to make sure I don't waste an appointment seeing the wrong people.
