    Default How long did it take your maternity hospital to get back to you?

    Wondering how long it took your maternity hospital to get back to you after the referral got sent in to let you know when to first come in etc.
    Sooo impatient!

    I went to the john hunter in newcastle.
    Referral was faxed on 26th feb. I didn't have my first apt until mid-june. I am a shared care patient though with no complications so I was triaged to the bottom of the list. I'm sure you won't have to wait as long

    Thanks...yeah I'm hoping to go public if I can get into a decent public hospital so quite impatient to hear back, I want to know what's happening! I did only post the referral on Monday though, maybe a 4 day turn around is asking a bit much for a hospital

    Hospital for my first preg i sent referral in at 10 weeks and got a letter 4 weeks later saying my appt was for 18 weeks.

    Hospital for this preg my referral was sent in at 8 weeks got a letter less than two weeks later with an appt for 13 weeks.

    Both different public hospitals in the same area. The first one was a larger hospital.

    Sent from my GT-I9100 using Bubhub

    About 2 weeks to get the letter with my first appointment time (another two weeks after from memory), this is a major public hospital.

    Thanks girls, those replies were really useful. So seeing they would have received my referral on Tuesday I'll give it till the beginning of the week after next or so to get hold of them. This is also a big public hospital that I"m a bit nervous I won't get into as I live on the outer fringes of their catchment area. I get in!
    Have a great weekend all! xx
