On the 3rd April this year I started the process, through the public health system, to have a damaged knee replaced.
To put it in a nutshell the entire process, from initial diagnosis, pre-op seminars, the surgery itself, carried out on the 10th September and the follow-up checks and consultations and physiotherapy classes at Levin health centre has gone very smoothly and within a very reasonable time frame. I must also praise the personnel involved. They were from the surgeon all the way down to the man who took the meal orders professional in every way.
I can only speak from personal experience BUT if that’s our public health system, in Mid Central at least they are to be congratulated.
