Hi all, wondering if anyone knows other clinics wait lists in Perth, I'm at concept and there are 150 on the list... It had been suggested I could try elsewhere, but how do you know the list length until you go through the interview and counseling?

I am with Concept and waited 18 months for a donor. As far as I know Pivet and Fertility North do donor sperm as well. Pivet was longer (out to 2 years at times!) and Fertility North much faster, about 6-9 months because they were importing from the US. I didnt know of them til later. The counsellor at Concept mentioned Fert North might not be as quick now but maybe you could call and speak to the donor co-ordinator and ask?
Good luck, they told me 9-12 months when I first went on the list, I think consider other states with no wait list I regret not investigating that.

@Flower78 thanks heaps! I will look into it, concept is saying 2 year wait and with 150 on the list and they have no donors at the moment, I'm concerned. I do want an Australian donor so squid can look them up is wanted.

I wanted an Australian donor too for the same reason. Though to be used in Australia they still have to provide identifying info the child can access, but finding them overseas would probably be a lot harder. I think Fertility North do have some local donors too.
The waitlist moved only 5 -10 per month, recalling my three monthly phone calls to check progress. Once you decide you want a baby the waiting is hard isn't it? I hope you find a quicker way!
