I was given a list of surgeons too, with a lot of names I had heard of through the forums. Most of these well known surgeons were based in London. My doctor was asked to write to our PCT to check the funding was still in place and I let her know which of the surgeons I prefer based on my research. The PCT replied that the funding was in place but for none of the London based surgeons as there is a hospital in the county that can do the operation and I have no reason to need to go to London. So, yes I will be closer to home but I will be with a surgeon I have never heard of, dont know what surgery they offer and cant find any reference or photo's of the surgeon's work online. This hospital was not even on the list supllied by Charing Cross.
Im just going to have to be patient and wait for the 13th August to get my questions answered.

Will I need to wear a surgical binder after top surgery? Will this be provided by the surgeon/the NHS?

Yes. I brought a back support and my surgeon provided another one to take home which I was supposed to wear at night. I had to wear them for 6 weeks.
