Hi Fairycake 🙂

Welcome to the forum. It’s pretty usual, unfortunately. Each PCT have different criteria. Which PCT are you under? What’s your BMI? Do you have any co-morbitities? All these make a difference as to whether your funding will be approved or not. Even then, the wheels can turn very slowly, and for those waiting there is nothing more frustrating than the waiting.

If you let us know a bit more about your personal circumstances, maybe we’ll (read Toni ;)) will be able to shed some light on your particular PCT’s criteria.

I wish you luck with your application for funding, and remember, there are appeals processes for exceptions, so even if they do say no initially, it’s not all over, there’s still hope, so hang on in there, and keep posting.

Take care
