I discussed the issue of access to bariatric surgery under the Public Health system in NSW with my GP a number of times over the last 6 years or so.
It is my belief that there is currently no public list for bariatric surgery here, like exists - I believe - in Victoria.
I eventually accessed some retirement funds and paid for it myself on May 3rd, two weeks ago today.
If you find anything to the contrary please let us all know as I kept an eye out for years hoping I could go public but in the end I couldn't wait any longer,
