Referral process/help for DIEP flap surgery

Hi

My referral process for DIEP surgery started yesterday as my local clinic can’t do it. My notes should be with my GP on Monday.

very anxious about how long this referral process may take and how long it will delay my surgery. Also worried about the referral process in general as I know it can be slow moving.

can you choose which hospital you are referred to?

Will some refuse to take you because of funding/costs? 

How did you find out which hospitals specialise in this surgery? 

Thanks

Kelly
