Hiya
unfortunately all trusts are different and the guidelines also change so I’m unable to offer any help in that respect but I will say don’t give up, it could be a long journey, mine was 22 months from start to finish. Use the time to research research research so your absolutely certain of what is involved and what to expect, it’s far from easy but absolutely worth it x

Let’s hope you have a quick journey! Some - like mine - have took for ever …… but then others seem to go through the system really quickly!! I am due to be sleeved a week on Monday …… but honestly don’t think it will happen because of COVID. The plus side is after a week of LRD I know I can do it …. so if it doesn’t happen when it should I know I can hack it when it does happen!! Keep your chin up and get your fingers crossed yours will come round quickly x

i have been in the system for 6 years 🤬🤬. There was a problem with who got the contract in my area ….. it kept stopping and getting transferred to another Trust, so in between each contract there was a delay till the new one started and that caused a huge back log ….. and then COVID hit so it all stopped again!! I lost the 5% weight I was asked to lose and attending all my appointments in the first year so was ready but they were not even transferring people to the Bariactic team. I got accepted and added to the list this time 3 years ago. i think my case is an exceptional case …. But as of today, Monday is the day when it happens!! Hope yours comes round much quicker!
