My husband recently noticed a pain in his stomach which didn’t seem to get any better over time.
Not sure what it might be, I convinced him to go to our GP for a checkup.
Now we don't often go to the doctor and have no set GP at the local medical centre, but he managed to get an appointment the very next day.
One of the many GP's saw him straight away and sent him for a blood test. Neither of which cost him anything as it is covered by Medicare (government funded medical cover here in Australia).
A week or so later the medical centre called and asked him to go in to get his results, which culminated on another blood test which was completed immediately, again on the Medicare rebate.
He was then referred to a specialist and his appointment is 6 weeks away and it will cost $250 for the consultation.
There is a vital lesson here for professional service providers, especially those in the wellness industry..have you got it yet?
