now thinking private health cover might be best

    Recommended Posts

    The unthinkable happened at weekend , i had to go to hospital as an emergency (lost feeling in my left arm and hand went blue ):(. I have to say i wasnt impressed with the public system really. So thats my moan for the day if anyone can suggest private health cover for 2 adults and one toddle thankyou.

    That's terrible!

     

    We don't have any cover yet, but after hearing that I think we had better start investigating things.

     

    How are you feeling now?

    im feeling ok hand still a bit numb but colour is normal, arm just achey so idea what the problem is/was. Dr is going to read up on what it could be as im a medical mystery aparently! Anyway im hoping this was just my own experience and wont reflect everyone elses, i just felt like id gone back 15 yrs to what nhs used to be like years ago and was a bit shocked to sit in a corridor with no basic rights such as privacy confidentiality etc. Im sure most people will have good experiences , and im sure if i had been more sick my treatment might have been better lol

    I had reason to be taken into Royal Adelaide hospital, 1 evening last August, with Renal Colic.

     

    I found that I received very good treatment, ultrasound, Xray & CT scan were carried out, painkillers given promptly, and after about 5 hours I was comfortable enough to be sent home.

     

    All this was done on Medicare, so I was happy!!

    Hopefully i was just unlucky this time, ive edited my original post as i was a bit emotional when i wrote it lol and probly said too much (like i usually do ha ha:biglaugh:), ive research private cover its looking at least $200 a month as hubby is an old fart!
