I’m sitting here outside theatre – hopefully for my second last (but perhaps my third last) dressing change/surgery to help my leg wounds recover post surgery – and I’m wondering… How the hell will all of this only end up costing me like $100 out of pocket???
I’ve been blessed during my cancer battle. Not only have I had Australia’s amazing public healthcare service, I’ve also had mum’s SUPER DUPER corporate level private health insurance too in my back pocket too. The last year, I’ve had to get my own, but due to our laws, I haven’t been discriminated against, and only pay $150/month for top cover. I know American friends who spend 10-15 times this much (in USD) for something similar (it comes part of their employment package, but I know a few, through poker, who have to pay out of pocket too… Holy crap). But though our #universal#healthcare that’s publicly funded is great, I know also that there are issues within our system too.
Most of my treatment has been processed through the public healthcare system. You actually get access to more equipped wards, ICUs and staff through it. It’s great.
But if my medical maladies weren’t so epic and urgent, if I needed something like a knee replacement, or if I had sleep apnoea which a simple surgery could fix, I may have been forced to wait 6 months to YEARS to get treatment. Many Aussies do.
I’ve been reading up on this (I’ve had to for my startups), but I definitely need to learn more about healthcare compensation and systems in general around the world.
But my God have I got this amazing country, and some amazing people to thank for keeping me here.
When I relapsed with leukemia, I was given a less than 10% chance of surviving. They told me palliatve care might be the best option. And it was then that I was confronted by the possibility that I may not be able to afford something that could keep me alive for the first time. To be continued in the comments...
Somewhere over the rainbow is my christmas holidays 😍🙏 🎄 This year it came trough surgery. Luckily I have lots of time to recover and heal from it 🙏❤️ Thank you all who have made it possible for me ❤️ Everything went super well and I was operated by so cool woman surgeon that I almost cried during the operation (it was done in spinal anesthetic), because she was just so awesome 🤩 I was of course asking questions all the time 🤣 I counted that there were at least 11 different nurses taking care of me today. They all are doing so important work, it is amazing. They all made me feel so safe and cared 🙏💕 Thanks to our public health care system, I was very happy taxpayer today 😍 It was nicest operation what I have had this far 🙏💕 Now I’ll take some time off from work and all fussing around 😁 Happy holidays to all of you 💕🎄 #happyholidays#publichealthcare#porvoonsairaala#amazing#womanpower#surgery#thankful#livingwithpkd#polycystickidneydisease#restingandhealing

Fears we're "selling our #NHS to #Trump " get dismissed as absurd. Seeing further privatisation leading to a US-style #healthcare system gets labelled ridiculous. And any increase in #pharmaceutical costs due to desperate trade deals with the States are wild conspiracy.
Preposterous. That was the word for @_posterproject's final public submission. And it's literally my reaction to the majority of political outcomes this last decade. What an absolute shitshow of a world we live in.
It may come as a surprise for many, but India has one of the best private health sectors in the world. Medical tourism is booming, and for good reasons. Treatments are highly professional, private hospitals are often equipped with the latest technology and treatments are almost half the price compared to other parts of the world. Indian doctors and nurses are highly trained, competent and speak English. Waiting lists are short and it is quick and easy to get a visa for medical purposes.
People from nearby countries such as Afghanistan and Bangladesh have for years travelled to India for medical treatments, and citizens from the Middle East and Africa have begun to join this trend. American insurance companies outsource certain operations and send their clients to India in increasing numbers. These are joined by Americans without insurance plans looking for high quality, low price medical services. Could Danes join this trend? For now, it’s difficult to imagine, mainly due to the comprehensive public health care system in Denmark. However, this system - like many others - is under pressure and the number of foreign doctors and nurses in Danish hospitals is on the rise. When recruiting foreign medical staff, the strategy of the Danish Government has focussed specifically on attracting Indians, and while some have joined Danish hospitals others have not found the process easy. More on that tomorrow. It is still quite likely though, to meet and be treated by Indian doctors and nurses during a stay in a Danish hospitals. And as public’ budgets become tighter, waiting lists grows longer and there is an increase in private health insurance in Denmark too, it is not unlikely that Danish patients could eventually travel for treatments and meet Indian doctors and nurses on their own turf.
So happy to be here in brazil visiting Barbara whom I haven’t seen for 10 years!!For my first day here I got to participate in a protest that her work put on. Barbara is a music therapist and works for public health care. The government here hasn’t been paying the people who work at the public health care services for two months and have also been making numerous other budget cuts that greatly effect the employees and the people who seek help from these services. It was amazing to be involved in the energy of the people today. #speakingout#riodejaneiro#publichealthcare#sus#caps#nenhumserviçodesaúdeamenos
I’ve been a little quiet on here as my little friend and I had a last minute hospital stay on Tuesday night! 🏥 👨🏻⚕️ 👩🏼⚕️
We’re home now and he’s ok - we’re just both knackered on account of being monitored every 2 hours 🙈.
A fun few days of 4 hourly medication lies ahead - poor little chap!
But it made me think it could be useful to jot down what I found useful to bring and what I wish I had - comprising my last minute list for a trip to A&E as unfortunately most mama’s will probably experience this at some point - although I hope you don’t have to!
⭐️ If like me you like to think you’re pretty good at guessing the diagnosis (and often mamas intuition is right - along with doctor google ofcourse 🤓!) but you have no idea of hospital policy on letting you go home! So don’t assume you’ll be in and out - an unexpected overnight stay just makes it harder - so assume you’re going in for at least 1 night to be on the safe side (and if you need more you can hopefully get someone to bring you things!).
⭐️ Several spare pairs of clothes for your bub (even if they have nothing wrong with their tum in my experience something will usually make them vomit - whether it’s a major meltdown, coughing or medication making them sick)
⭐️ At least one spare change for you (when bub is sick - the first place it usually lands is on you - as I found out the hard way in the a&e reception! What a way to make an entrance - although it did get us seen super fast!)

Consistency and Committment are my words for 2019 and that means no excuses when it comes to work, life and school balance.
Check out the link in my bio for some tips on how to prepare for a new semester.
Thank you for all the messages and comments asking how Willow is. We managed to get an out of hours emergency GP appointment last night at 9pm, where Willow was examined and the GP felt it was necessary for her to go straight to A&E with a referral for blood tests and x-rays. He suspected septic arthritis, something I'd never even heard of before.
After reading the NHS page on septic arthritis, it's safe to say panic set in. I absolutely imagined the worst. I really panicked and spent a good few hours crying and worrying and just imagining all the different scenarios. The very best case scenario had it been septic arthritis, would have been a two week hospital stay on an IV drip.
It took Willow 8 hours to be seen by the LRI Children's A&E department. The government target is 4 hours - and I don't blame anyone working within the NHS.
I know they're underfunded, understaffed, they struggle to run with the demand they have with so many cuts, nevermind losing hardworking European medical professionals who have been told by the UK they are no longer welcome here, or the huge decrease in students training in medicine, because the government stripped nursing bursaries and saddles our nurses and doctors with huge debts. NHS staff are overworked, underpaid and being stripped of everything they need to do their job.
We're lucky. It isn't septic arthritis. It's a "very bad virus that's causing pain in her joints". She will be OK. But it could have been a very different story. Imagine if it was septic arthritis, and it took 8 hours to be seen. Imagine the bill we'd have had, for all the NHS care from GP to 111 to A&E, that she received over an 11 hour period.
The NHS needs our support, our voices, and a government that will put the NHS and its staff first. The current government does not do that. The NHS is too precious to lose. Please think of the NHS when you vote next week. Please listen to the pleas from the NHS to support them.
Thank you, for caring for our little girl. She is going to spend the weekend getting smothered in cuddles from one very thankful mama 🖤 🏥
