The specialist outpatient clinics in the public healthcare system are getting overwhelmed, some patients have to wait for years to conduct surgery. Over the past 6 months, some non-urgent surgeries have been postponed to concentrate resources to deal with the pandemic, and this further delayed the waiting time in the specialist outpatient clinics. In fact, people can choose to receive some simple treatments in day procedure centres.
As more and more people will go to day procedure centres, this helps relieve the burdens in the public healthcare system. Patients will not have to wait long to receive the surgery that they need. Most of the medical insurances on the market, including the Voluntary Health Insurance Scheme launched by the government, have reimbursed the expenses in day procedure centres. Consult your doctor to know more and receive a timely remedy.
