    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

    Hiya,

    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.

    thanks fans for the replies :wink:

     

    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
