    As Emma said all hospitals vary in their pathway and as I was Luton and Dunstable I can’t help with your but I’m sure someone else here will be able to, I too had a bypass on April 5th 2018, I just wanted to wish you luck and welcome you xxx

    Hi @JadeyBabey1988
    I have had my Surgery at Walsall Manor, so I can offer you a bit of info... and please feel free to ask me any questions - I will help wherever I can :)
    In my own diary I added a timeline thread which I think is pretty standard in terms of waiting times. Best of luck with everything x

    I thought it may be useful for people to see my timelines because I’ve seen quite a few questions about waiting times.
    I originally went to GP about surgery in March ‘15 who signposted me to weightwatchers for 6 months.
    I duly went back to GP on Sept ‘15 who said rules had changed and added a further 3 months to WW.
    In Dec ‘15 GP I was advised that the rules had changed again and I now had to be referred for Tier 3 with local dietician.
    April ‘16 and I was finally referred to Walsall Manor – Royal Stoke is actually my local but my GP advised WM has lower weighting times.
    June 16 – first MDT meeting
    July 16 – second MDT meeting – (advised me of a 6 month wait – taking me to Xmas)
    July ‘16 Sleep apnea appointment, and subsequent tests which took until ‘Sept 16.
    Oct ‘16 – meeting with surgeon
    Oct ‘16 – Psychologist: Dr Kendrick and group session (surgeon wouldn’t sign consent forms because he was running late that day - this added 3 months onto time
    Jan ‘17 sign consent forms
    Feb 17 – pre-op & anaesthetist
    May 18th - call with proposed date
    May 22nd Start LRD
    19th June ‘17 – D Day !!! - CANCELLED
    10th July '17 - Op date
