Hello. I live on the Isle of Wight. My Gp got me funding to do the tier 3 weigh ahead program. At the end of tier 3 they wrote to my GP recommending that I would be a good candidate for surgery. My GP referred my to Spire Southampton. I received a letter from Spire Southampton which was a copy of a letter they had sent my GP saying they couldn’t process my referral as there was no funding authorisation number on it. My GP said he would sort it out. Then last week I got a text message from spire Southampton to phone to make appointment with surgeon. I made the appointment but now worried that funding hasn’t been sorted . Would they have offered me an appointment if funding hadn’t been sorted ? Is it normal for hospital to text you to make an appointment. My appointment is 7.30pm, seem a funny time. Not even sure what happens when I get there. Why does no-one ever explain anything probably!
