      Hi Mart

      Welcome to the forum :D

      Only you know the right answer to staying or going but have have only heard good things about the health service in oz so don't think that would be a major problem for you.

      Not there for another 7 weeks so cannot say first hand :D

      Speaking from personal experience of the Aussie public health care system, I would say they are far far better than the NHS anyday. Obviously other people have their views, but I felt as though the doctors there were actually interested in what i had to say, whereas here in the UK they can't wait to get rid of you. Perhaps a letter from your GP/Specialist would help stating whats wrong with your knee and what still needs to be done (ie physio). Personally I would still go and then arrange your physio through a GP. Just make sure you register with MediCare when you get there to be able to claim some money back.

      well ive read up heaps online about medicare and there doesnt appear to be hidden worries other than the nominal ambulance cover for the family

      i spent 21/2 hrs waiting to see dr then additional 45 mins for pain killers - kinda depressing - go back in 4 weeks mmmm i have to hand notice in mid may god do i dare go for it and arrive with an ongoing injury in the event its not sorted in the u k???

      gotta say staying any longer in my current school doesnt appeal however much i love the place n the kids i teach.........and if weve sold house.....cashed in..........to hell with it im thinking you live once but i need to be fit for work and not teaching pe wud be worse than nibbling a spiders bum :D
