Default Weight Loss Surgery -Gastric Band advice needed

Hi, I'm Kate, I'm 22, weight: 16.7 stone, height: 5'2, BMI: 42.8, exercising and dieting for 6 years, I became regularly active on this site 3 months ago, I love this site and plan to continue to use this, maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine, but I was wanting to know if anyone like me has been referred to have a gastric band before by their GP on the NHS, and if they have what happens once your GP has sent off a referral to the closest place that takes in referrals and makes decisions based on evidence and severity? I would love any information any one can give me, decision wait, procedures if you're accepted, time scale to wait, anything.
