    Hi all hope you’re all having a fantastic summer ! I was wondering if anyone that had a bypass with funding could explain how it works ? A very good friend of mine had a call from her doctor yesterday to say that she had been accepted for funding for a bypass, does anyone know what the next stage is and how long she’ll be waiting etc ? All information gratefully received x

    Hiya
    I think it depends on the PCT. I am in Brighton and when my funding was approved I was given a list of hospitals to choose from. I chose st Richards in Chichester as it is a centre of excellence for bariatric surgery. I then had to go for an assessment day where I saw the surgeons, dieticians, psychologist and specialist nurse. I was there all day and by the end of it I was told that they would be happy to operate. In terms of time I thinky funding was approved in October, my Mdt was in November and I had my bypass on the 5th march this year. Hope this helps

    I had mine with Shaw Somers in July 2008. From initial consultation to surgery was one month. I was a very poorly woman though so time was of the essence. Hope your friend gets on ok 😉
