    Hi,

    Can anyone help?!? how long do you have to wait. I was informed, I was put on the Waiting list back in October 17. The consultant by the name of Star, told me 6 months waiting. I still haven’t heard anything.

    I would give them a call. This will give you reassurance that you haven’t been lost in the system & give you an up to date time line
    Good luck with your journey x

    Hiya welcome, I can only reiterate what others have said, definitely call them, hopefully you’ll get a different person on the phone who isn’t so aggressive
