My son is in Victoria, his referral was marked as urgent, he’s been on the list 12 months in July 2018. And this is for the first initial consult with the surgeon, then it’s a further wait for the actual surgery. Not helped by the fact that the hospital he was booked into allowed his boss to call and cancel an appointment he had in July (because it didn’t suit her as she was having holidays) and re-book it for September.
My partner is in Tasmania, referral also marked as urgent, been waiting 4 months so far and counting. He doesn’t have much leave left from work, hopefully it’s not too much longer!
